Great Lakes rising faster than normal

SUPERIOR, WI (WTAQ) - Lake Superior rose faster than normal in June, but it’s still six inches shallower than the norm for the start of July.

A Great Lakes international agency said the average water level on Lake Superior rose 4 inches last month, twice the normal increase for June.

The largest of the Great Lakes is now 2 inches higher than a year ago, and officials say the upward trend is continuing.

Lakes Michigan and Huron are also on the rise, but officials say both are 19 inches below their long-term averages. The Michigan and Huron water levels both rose 3 inches last month, an inch above the norm. They’re also about 1 inch higher than last July 1st.

The Upper Great Lakes are seeing a much needed increase, after a long period in which both commercial and recreational boating were hampered by lower than normal waters.
