Great Lakes water levels rebound

Great Lakes water levels are rebounding after a decade-long drop. During the mid-1980s, levels were high. A sudden drop began in the late 1990s. It forced cargo ships to lighten their loads to avoid grounding. If the estimates prove accurate, global warming will cause the lakes to recede up to 3 feet this century.
