Lake Levels at Record Low

Lake Levels at Record Low

Lake Superior’s water levels are the lowest they’ve been in 75 years. According to the Army Corps of Engineers and a recent Save Lake Superior Association release, a quick recovery is out of the question. John Love of the Army Corps of Engineers said, “It has taken three years to get to this point, and it would take three years of solid snowfall winters with moderate summer temperatures and regular spring rains to bring the lake back to normal.”
