Living With the Lakes

Download PDF | Published February 2000

Great Lakes boaters and shoreline property owners have seen dramatic lake level fluctuations in recent years. What causes these fluctuations? Can anyone predict when the current low levels will rise? Can lake levels be controlled? How can shoreline property be protected? Dozens of experts in hydrology, lake level modeling, coastal management, engineering and resource policy answer these and other questions in Living with the Lakes, a joint product of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and Great Lakes Commission. Originally published in November 1999; reprinted in February 2000.
