Technically Lakes Huron & Michigan are one lake hydrologically.

It's the combination of lower rainfall and snowfall over the past decades combined with the dredging of the river which accelerated the natural process.

One day we'll figure out we can't manipulate our environment without unintended consequences.

I don't know what they are talking about. For the last two years our yards have flooded in the fall and spring. It was never like that before.

I live right on Lake Huron and I can attest to the fact the lake is lower that it's ever been since the town was founded in the 1800's. Our stationary boat docks are completely out of the water and the river which used to flood the bridge in spring is now 10 feet below "normal". The river actually ran dry this past summer for the first time in anyone's memory.
