WASHINGTON, D.C. (WKZO) -- Water levels in the Great Lakes are on their way back up after hitting record lows last year.

Officials with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and National Oceanic and Atmospheric Association are calling the rise almost unprecedented, with Lakes Michigan and Huron going up nearly 20-inches from February to June.  Overall, the lakes remain lower than average because of how far down the water levels had fallen.

he rise this year is credited to a lot of snow over the winter and a wet spring and summer.
