Re: Low Water & WE are the primary cause
With regard to the St. Claire River dredging, the research I've read suggests that while there is some contribution to lowering Huron, Michigan and Superior, it remains a small effect compared to evaporation and diminished water inputs (rain and snow).
Mike, I beg to differ with your information. This is a current report that indicates human intervention on the St. Claire has lowered Michigan/Huron by roughly 2 feet. Great Lakes | Update - Lakes Michigan, Huron hit record low water level
