Lake Champlain Drops Below 102 feet

The Lake Champlain water level has dropped below 102 feet for the first time since late April, according to data collected by the USGS at the Burlington Waterfront.

The record-setting water level in Lake Champlain has dropped below 102 feet for the first time since late April according to the USGS gauge at the Echo Center on the Burlington Waterfront.

The reading from 7 a.m. this morning showed the water level was at 101.86 feet, still above the 100 feet flood stage mark, but an indication the water level is beginning to recede. Let’s hope this trend continues.
