Low Lake Levels Mean Lighter Ship Loads

DULUTH, MN (KDAL) - The water levels on the Great Lakes continue to be well below long term averages which will mean about a ten percent decrease in the loads ships can carry without fear of scraping the bottom in some areas.  Lake Superior is down about 13 inches from its average and Lakes Michigan and Huron are 27 inches below long term averages.  March levels usually increase a bit but that hasn't been the case this year as cold weather kept snow from melting.
