Lake Superior Water Levels Topic of Free Public Talk

February 3, 2003

The public is invited to the next free talk in the “Superior Science for You!” speaker series, hosted by the University of Minnesota Sea Grant Program.

On February 12 at 7 p.m. in the Duluth, EPA Mid-Continent Ecology Division, Gitchee Gumee Conference Facility (6201 Congdon Blvd.), Al Klein, area engineer for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers in Duluth, will present, “Three Quadrillion Gallons, Give or Take a Foot.”

Everybody knows Lake Superior has a lot of water, but does it have enough? Our speaker will address issues related to the rise and fall of the Great Lakes and Lake Superior, including how and why levels change, and what those changes mean to lake ecology, fish, and people.

A reception will follow the talk. If you can’t attend the talk in person, try listening through your computer! Live audio will be broadcast from the EPA Lab through Minnesota Sea Grant’s Web site. Computer listeners can view the speaker’s slides and even e-mail the speaker questions and he will answer them at the end of the talk. A video of the presentation will be posted to this site the next day.

This Lake Superior-related speaker series was made possible by a grant funded under the Coastal Zone Management Act by NOAA’s Office of Ocean and Coastal Resource Management in conjunction with Minnesota’s Lake Superior Coastal Program.
