BACKGROUND:
Great Lakes boaters and shoreline property owners have seen dramatic
lake level fluctuations in recent years. What causes these fluctuations?
Can anyone predict when the current low levels will rise? Can lake
levels be controlled? How can shoreline property be protected? These and
other questions have been on the minds of literally millions who live,
boat or play along the shores of the Great Lakes.

A new publication titled "Living with the Lakes," a joint product of the
U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and the Great Lakes Commission, has answers
to these and many more questions. A definitive yet easy-to-read guide,
this 40-page, full-color publication benefited from the advice and
review of dozens of experts in hydrology, lake level modeling, coastal
management, engineering and resource policy.

"Living with the Lakes" covers the glacial history of the Great
Lakes-St. Lawrence River system; the hydrologic cycle; lake level
fluctuations; human influences on lake levels; regulating, measuring and
forecasting levels; effects of fluctuations; and structural and
nonstructural options for shoreline protection. Also included are
comprehensive maps, points of contact, and recommendations on web sites,
videos and other publications.

"Living with the Lakes" will be widely distributed to planners,
government officials and the general public throughout the Great Lakes
basin.
