The Little Traverse Lake Association has taken a very active role in researching and seeking solutions to fluctuating water levels on Little Traverse Lake including high water levels that have damaged property and negatively impact water quality. Efforts continue in collaboration with Cleveland Township, National Park System and private engineering partners. Your donations and membership dues help support this ongoing project.
Observed and expected changes in Northern Michigan’s climate:
Storms are expected to become more frequent and more severe. Already, the amount of precipitation falling in the heaviest 1% of storms increased by 37% in the Midwest between 1958 and 2012. Due to changes in temperature and the seasonality of storm patterns, it is anticipated that increased precipitation will fall as rain instead of snow, and be concentrated in the spring and fall months. Wetter weather can strain infrastructure, cause flooding around lakes, streams and coastlines, and flush toxins into water bodies. -Cleveland Township Master plan 2017
