Lake Water Levels

If you're a keen observer of the lake, you may have noticed our beaches are smaller this year. That’s because the water in Lake Michigan is at its highest level since 1998. But in 2013, the lake hit a historical low. So in just over two years, the lake has risen more than 3 feet.
