While all of the Great Lakes may fluctuate within certain ranges, Lakes Michigan/Huron and The Georgian Bay have, by far, the greatest normal range - roughly 6 feet (2 m). They also constitute the largest of only three Great Lakes (Michigan, Huron and Erie) that don't have their levels controlled by regulating outflows. The Great Lakes Compact prohibits new or increased diversions outside the Great Lakes basin with limited exceptions for communities and counties that straddle the basin boundary and meet rigorous standards. It asks states to develop water conservation plans, collect water use data, and produce annual water use reports.

  ‘Bigger picture, it’s climate change’: Great Lakes flood ravages homes and roads # Climate Change Sends Great Lakes Water Levels Seesawing – Six years ago, lake levels were low, now lakeside communities face widespread flooding – As recently as , water levels on most of the Great Lakes were very low. The specter of climate change is looming over the Great Lakes and Michigan. According to the Union of Concerned Scientists, Michigan can expect much hotter summers by the end of the century. In , scientists estimate that temperatures will exceed 90 degrees Fahrenheit for 65 days of the year, getting over degrees for 23 of those.

The Great Lakes Basin encompasses the following 8 states: Minnesota, Wisconsin, Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Ohio, Pennsylvania and New York. Due to its vast importance there are many efforts to keep the lakes from being invaded by non-native plants and animal species. "The Great Lakes Water Wars provides essential context for the region's ongoing discussions about the sustainable use of Great Lakes water resources. The book offers a thorough, informative, and insightful recounting of how the region's struggle to manage Great Lakes water resources has informed the way future uses will be reviewed and evaluated.
