July 1, 2014 - Water levels across the Great Lakes are rebounding after significantly low levels two years ago.

Experts say it's good news for the great lakes region as water levels are about 8-9 inches higher then they were last year at this time.

Lake Erie is the shallowest of the Great Lakes, and just two years ago, water levels were low, worrying many boaters who are out on the water frequently.

Harry Leslie, Presque Isle State Park Manager, says a significant amount of ice cover this winter helped the water levels bounce back.

He says there's no concern for flooding or erosion yet, saying it's good news that the levels are back to where they are.

The water levels give boaters access to areas they might not have been able to access in 2012.
