Experts Fear Low Water Levels Again This Year
Despite a decent amount of snowfall this winter, experts say water levels on Lake Ontario and the St. Lawrence River will probably be low again this year.
Dave White of the New York Sea Grant says only 15 percent of the levels come from run-off from rain and snow.
Most -- 85 percent -- comes from the rest of the Great Lakes system through Niagara Falls and the Welland Canal.
And, White points out, Lakes Huron and Michigan have never been as low as they are now.
