Lake Level Viewer

NOAA’s Lake Level Viewer helps users visualize lake level changes that range from six feet above to six feet below historical long-term average water levels in the Great Lakes, along with potential shoreline and coastal impacts. Communities can use this information to determine what preparations make the most sense in planning for water level change scenarios. Preparations might include zoning restrictions, infrastructure improvements, and habitat conservation. Information obtained from this tool also provides a good lead-in for community discussions about climate change.
