GLIN==> Water's Up, But Coal's Down in July

Coal shipments on the Lakes were down nearly 6 percent in July, despite rising water levels.  Lake Superior and Lake Michigan loadings were on par with a year ago, but Lake Erie docks collectively slipped by about 300,000 tons.  The dredging crisis remained a factor.  Even though one cargo topped 67,000 tons, the largest vessels were still forfeiting 4,000 tons or more each trip.  See attached for more details.
