Broad Scope To The Study Of Falling Great Lake Levels

A major study is about to be launched to discover why water levels are falling in Lake Michigan, and elsewhere in the Great Lakes system, including whether Army Corps of Engineers' dredging in the St. Clair river has caused unexpected outflows of water to the Atlantic Ocean.

The river is part of the Ontario/Michigan boundary.

While the five-year study horizon is flawed, the study's scope is comprehensive and could lead to some solid findings, according to a decent summary of the issues in the Detroit Free Press.

The piece is worth saving.
