Washington D.C.) - There’s good news for Lake Michigan property owners. Water levels on Lake Michigan are two inches below last month and ten inches lower than a year ago, according to the U.S. Army Corps. Of Engineers.

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers also predicts water levels in July will be about a foot below levels from the previous July. Experts say lower than average precipitation is the primary reason.

Record high water is to blame for lakefront property owners on Lake Michigan having their homes at risk of falling over the edge of badly eroded shorelines the past several years. Some homes have toppled over the edge.
