An article in today's Detroit News states that -
The northern Great Lakes, particularly Huron and Michigan, are losing water three times faster through the St. Clair River than previously believed, according to a study released Tuesday by a private Canadian group.
Of course, there is talk of an international study that should be performed to back up the study by the Canadian group. Like all things government related they believe the study could be finished in 3-5 years.
Nothing like the urgency of low lake waters (Lake Superiors water levels are the lowest in 80 years) to get a study done in just 3-5 years. If changes made to the St. Clair River are indeed causing the upper Great Lakes water levels to drop can you imagine where they will be in 3-5 years.
I don't know about you, but I think it is rather important to find out if indeed man has caused the lower levels and find some solutions to it.
