Western Michigan water levels

Anyone know what the water levels are for the Western Michigan marinas from Chicago to Holland? I know they are down due to the mild winter.

Holland is currently 3.9" above LWD (low water datum). You can get all the data you need on GLIN (Great Lakes Information Network), including current water levels and forecasted levels.

Re: Western Michigan water levels

Not surprisingly, public concerns about water levels in the upper Great Lakes differ considerably depending on geographic location,” the group said in a news release.

Residents in the Georgian Bay in Ontario, for example, support structures such as 30-foot sills or speed bumps, on the floor of the St. Clair River in Detroit. They also support installing inflatable barriers that can open and close to regulate water flow that would help raise water levels.

Noticed this morning:

POTUS requested continued funding of Great Lakes restorations projects including

Quote:
The president's spending plan also seeks nearly $63 million for Great Lakes projects overseen by the Detroit district of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. That includes $13.2 million to dredge seven harbors where low water levels threaten to disrupt commercial shipping. They include ports in the Michigan cities of Detroit, Grand Haven, Holland, Monroe and Saginaw, plus Green Bay, Wis., and the port shared by Superior, Wis., and Duluth, Minn.
