Dave,
If you are just looking at the conterminous U.S.
The are of the conterminous U.S. is 3,021,295 sq. Miles. Table 1, page 8,
Statistical Abstract of the United States
The volumes of the Great Lakes are:
Lake Superior 2900 cubic miles
Lake Michigan 1180 "
Lake Huron 850 "
Lake St Clair 1 "
Lake Erie 116 "
Lake Ontario 393 "
Total 5440 " Cordinated Great lakes Physical Data, (1977)

5440/3021295*5280 = 9.51 ft.
The Great Lakes would therefore cover the conterminous (excludes Alaska and
Hawaii) U.S. to a depth of 9.5 ft.
