UNDATED (KDAL) - The mean water level of Lake Superior in March was 0.4 inches above the long term average for the month and the highest March level since 1998.  The U-S Army Corps of Engineers figures shows levels declined less than average during March and at the start of April was 13 inches higher than a year ago.  The level of Lake Superior is also expected to begin its seasonal rise during April.  Higher water levels will allow shippers to carry more tonnage per vessel during the coming season.
