Great Lakes losing 2.5 billion gallons of water a day

The potential implications of the following story are really, really uncool for everyone that is interested in conservation and preservation of the greatest freshwater resource on the planet:

Great Lakes losing 2.5 billion gallons of water a day: “[This summer’s distressingly low water levels on the upper Great Lakes have a lot of people scratching their heads, but a group of Canadian property owners is pointing the finger straight at the Army Corps of Engineers – an agency it says is largely responsible for a 3-foot drop in the long-term average levels on Lakes Michigan and Huron.]”
