12. Great Lakes Water Levels
I have been told that the dredging of the St Clair River has increased the flow from Lake Michigan and Lake Superior and is a major reason for the lower water levels in the upper Great Lakes. I have also heard the argument that there is dredging going on in the Detroit river, which is after the St Clair River..which would indicate slower flow and sediment build up. I have also heard that the water being taken from Lake Michigan through Chicago has increased dramatically over the last 10 years.

I would be interested to know if anyone can has any information with regard to this.
The Great lakes are more precious and should be used wisely, in the future cities in arid locals like Nevada and Arizona will not make sense.
