Wisconsin’s Shoreline Communities Cope with Low Water Levels
At the Milwaukee Yacht Club, a dredging crane scooped up tons of sediment in the days before Christmas just so boats could be removed from the harbor before winter set in.

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers tracks lake levels from monitoring gauges placed all around Lakes Michigan and Huron, which are actually two lobes of one large lake connected at the Straits of Mackinac. The Army Corps has long acknowledged that mining and dredging in the St. Clair dropped the lakes’ long-term average by about 16 inches, though a recent study found it may be more like 21 inches.

Within a centimeter of the all-time record low water level set in March of 1964, the Army Corps is expected to release a six-month forecast, although a previous forecast called for water levels to continue to decline through January. The agency reported the Michigan and Huron basin received only 32% of its average precipitation for November and 87% of its average for the past year.
