Here's a site with real time water levels in Lake St. Clair: St. Clair River, Lake St. Clair and Detroit River Current Water Levels

And here you can see past and future water level predictions for all the Lakes, including St. Clair: GLWLD - Great Lakes Water Level Dashboard

Why go fast, when you can go slow.

Re: Low Water

Why not divert the water for agriculture? 2 million gallons per second flows out of the Great Lakes into the St. Lawrence, so why not utilize some of that water for productive uses rather than just let it flow into the Ocean?

And, if Chicago diverted more water, the river would be a whole lot cleaner.
