    Saint Clair River, outlet for Lake Huron, forming part of the boundary between Michigan, U.S. (west), and Ontario, Can. (east).Flowing southward into Lake Saint Clair, with a fall of feet ( m) in 39 miles (63 km), the river discharges through a silty, seven-mouth delta, with the South Channel (foot [8-metre] minimum depth) used for deep-drafted vessels. Another factor might be a reduction in sand supply to the St. Clair River caused by shoreline protection measures built along the shores of Lake Huron and harbor construction near the mouth of the river. The Great Lakes comprise fully one-fifth of the freshwater supply to the entire planet. Michigan, the Great Lakes State, looks to the lakes.

Lake St. Clair (French: Lac Sainte-Claire) is a freshwater lake that lies between the Canadian province of Ontario and the U.S. state of was named in by French Catholic explorers after Saint Clare of Assisi, on whose feast day they first sighted this body of water.. It is part of the Great Lakes system, and along with the St. Clair River and Detroit River, Lake St. Clair Coordinates: 42°28′N 82°40′W / °N .

    The high water event was basin-wide, caused primarily by wet weather conditions across the entire Great Lakes – St. Lawrence River system. These conditions have persisted for several years and increased in intensity more recently, notably in , and again during the several months of fall and winter leading up to the spring of J.

Introduction• Two Major Questions: – What effects have past dredging events () had on conveyance in the St. Clair River. – What effects have bathymetric changes in the St. Clair River had on conveyance since. Clair Flats: A survey began at the mouth of the south channel; little changes compared to a survey made 10 years earlier.

No construction and/or dredging information found. Improvements were proposed for the St. Clair Flats, south channel. A chart of the St. Clair River was released, including scundings.

Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) dredged the river to a depth of 27 feet, deepening the channel by 2 feet, to accommodate freighters. Select up to three search categories and corresponding keywords using the fields to the right. Refer to the Help section for more detailed instructions.

While climate change influences water levels, human activities such as dredging can also play a role. For example, the St. Clair river opening was enlarged in the s, s, and s, contributing to greater outflows from Lakes Michigan and Huron.
