Great Lakes water levels near record low; ports closing
Shipping companies are making a case to Congress for more money to dredge Great Lakes ports and waterways. With water levels near a record low, ports are losing the battle against sediment.

Picture a football field with dirt piled a mile and a half high. That’s how much the backlog of dredging is in the Great Lakes. Lake Carriers Association Vice-President Glen Neckvasil says the Army Corps of Engineers has had enough money to keep pace with sediment in only six of the last 25 years. He says this means lakers are sailing with light loads: “... extremely so. Right now, looking at the end of December there, ships — that if the water levels were high, it could carry 72,000 tons of cargo — were carrying less than 61,000 tons.”

Re: Great Lakes water levels near record low; ports closing
I work on the Great Lakes on a ship as a deck officer.

There is no conspiracy here. Congress sends all the money to fight wars. Not enough for the Army Corp of Engineers to dredge. Dredging is necessary even during high water years. Dredging is necessary in all ports of the world. It just so happens our government is an abyssmal failure. Actually they are criminals.

Water is extra low because the Great Lakes has had no real snowfall for a couple of years. It has nothing to do with niagra falls or any of that crap. The lakes are a thousand feet deep. All we need is a little dredging but again, genociding people in other countries is more important.

Keep in mind that if Great Lakes shipping dies, America dies. One flake freighter carries more than ten 5-mile long trains. And the railroads are already gridlocked.
