Water level news and maps on GLIN

Water levels.With water levels on the Great Lakes continuing a downward trend, GLIN is offering new online services to aid the shipping community, shoreline property owners, boaters and all other recreational users of the lakes. The new regional data portal for water level observations is made possible through a partnership with NOAA’s National Ocean Service (NOS) – Center for Operational Oceanographic Products and Services (CO-OPS). NOS manages a suite of premier web tools for acquiring and distributing vital environmental measurements, including water levels, currents, winds, air and water temperature, and related hydrologic and meteorological data.
