Well its funny that these prospective business around the Great Lakes don't see the real issue that is impacting our water resources. One, the lake levels are at a low and are predicted to get worse. You can thank the Army Corps of Engineers for that, when they dredged the St. Clair River & St. Lawrence Sea Way for shipping. But this damaged way more than they (Army Corps. of Engineers) want to admit. Dredging allowed more water to flow into the ocean, possibly leading to massive desalination of the ocean. What many think is global warming could possibly just be from this imbalance, resulting in widespread damage to both the Great Lakes and the world's weather patterns – influenced by ocean currents / temps which are affected by salination levels. Canada and the rest of the world need to take the Army Corps of Engineers to international court for destruction of the ocean climate that affects the whole world for the benefit of some stupid shipping companies.

When the water level was high in the great lakes, there was no expectation that water flowing out of the great lakes would have ANY affect, effect on great lakes water levels for



it was determined that rain, lack of or presence of,

and evapotranspiration had the most effect on lake levels.

Not, the export of water through river channels.

In just three short years, due because of higher winds, evapotranspiration, and reduction of rainfail over the great lakes basin was the reason for the large reduction in lake leavls.
