Record high Lake Huron water levels over the past few years have resulted in significant toe erosion and oversteepening of the shoreline bluffs. In addition, seasonal rainfall and snowmelt have saturated the land and softened the clay till bluffs, making some areas along Lake Huron prone to collapse. These destabilizing conditions will likely lead to an increase in erosion through slope failures, slumping and gully erosion.
