High lake levels continuing in fall

More recent rainfalls and less evaporation are making for Lake Michigan levels continually troublesome for many property owners around Door County.  The shoreline along both the lake and Green Bay has been battling shore erosion for several months. Kieth Kompoltowicz from the Great Lakes Corps of Engineers explains the reasons behind the high water levels this year.

 

 

Lake Michigan average water level reached 582 feet in late July tying the record set in 1986.  With water levels typically declining in the fall, Lake Michigan still measured nearly 582 feet last week which is 16 inches higher than it was last September.
