Bad Winter Good News for Great Lakes

MUSKEGON, Michigan — Above average snowfall and prolonged ice cover on the lakes this past winter caused Lake Michigan’s water level to rise six inches in April, according to the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.

The rise, twice the average, is welcome news for recreational boaters, shipping companies and marinas hampered last year by near-record low levels on Lake Michigan and its connecting waters.
