  • Lake Erie

    Just noticed this heading; what is the thinking of great lakes folks, especially those of us on Lake Erie regarding lake levels for the coming year? Doesn't sound like it's going to be much different from last year I'm afraid.

      We had some really high points in early January on Lake Michigan. But right now the water is down some, and we haven't had to much snow either. Its been an odd winter, not much ice in our harbor which I'm sure irritates the fisherman.

        Ahhhhh, the days of Florida to Detroit, and the four seasons we would get doing it.

          Extremely high this past summer; all stationary docks were a foot or more under water most of the season and much beach erosion. At our end of Lake Erie, any breath of air out of the northeast would put downtown Port Clinton under water; was a mess. This coming season looks much the same unfortunately.

              This may well sound like a dumb question but here goes. Is there any spill way or a way of creating one or a pump system to dump the excess to some other location, lake or state that could use it?

                At one time not too many years ago there was talk about selling water to western states, but the Great Lakes states put an end to that thought pattern in a hurry mostly because there was low water at that time. Not sounding like too bad an idea now and if you were to think like a conspiracy theorist then maybe the lakes have been forced up to create the need to "get rid" of water. Interesting idea and good question.
                We do know the amount of water released over Niagara Falls and the Welland canal can be and is controlled and the lake freight industry has a lot of input in that regard.
