Michigan About to Ask, “Hey – Where’d My Beach Go?”
Remember when the water levels on the Great Lakes were so low it affected boat slips and shipping? That was only six years ago - in 2013. Things have changed and you can thank all that rain we've had this spring.
According to BridgeMI.com, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers announced Tuesday that Lake Erie, Lake St. Clair and Lake Superior all broke records for high water levels in the month of May. And it looks like the other lakes may be about to set their own records. So, this time, we'll have more water, but less beach. Some boat docks will end up under water and already there's been some flooding on roads, because of high water levels on Saginaw Bay.
So if your favorite beach is suffering from a little shrinkage this summer - now you know why.
