Re: Low Water

Low lake levels suck. I went hard aground on a rock I did not even know about in our mooring field in Milwaukee (same body of water as Huron). Lake levels are 15 inches below last year at this time. I understand that along with lower precipitation in the upper midwest, the St. Claire river was dredged. This increased the outflow of water from the system.

Hopefully we get a bunch of snow this winter... or they build a dam in Detroit.
