    Lake St. Clair Levels

The United States Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) have charted Lake St. Clair levels since 1918. The Hydrograph below shows the recorded levels. Note that the long term average is 175 meters (approximately 54.6 feet). The recorded lows occurred in 1926 and 1936 when the Lake fell below 174 meters. The Lake’s highest levels occurred in 1987 when the Lake rose to almost 176 meters. (Remember when lakefront owners were constructing berms to protect them from possible flooding?)
