Guidebook to Drought Planning, Management and Water Level Changes in the Great Lakes

Prompted by the severity of the drought of the summer of 1988, the Great Lakes Commission recognized the need to strengthen the region’s ability to anticipate and respond to drought and its attendant impacts on Great Lakes water levels. At its November 1988 annual meeting, the GLC created the Task Force on Drought Management and Great Lakes Water Levels. This document is a product of that Task Force.
