Lake Champlain Water Level Beginning to Go Down

Data taken from the USGS water-level gauge at the ECHO Center on Burlington's Waterfront, indicates a slight drop in the lake level, welcome news after last week's widespread flooding.

The record-setting water level on Lake Champlain has started to go down- slightly. The United States Geological Survey (USGS) water-level gauge at the ECHO Center at the Burlington Waterfront, indicates the water level has begun to drop. The water level rose nearly 2 feet last week as water from heavy rains and slow melt flowed into the lake, leading to widespread flooding that effected lakefront homes, camps and businesses. A flood warning remains effect for Grand Isle, Franklin, Chittenden, Addison and Rutland counties. Tuesday’s weather forecast anticipates additional rainfall statewide that could be heavy at times.
