Pics Top 16 Lake Huron "World's Third Largest Lake" - Photos and Details...








Lake Huron is the third largest of the lakes by volume with 3,540 km3 (850 cubic miles) of water. Its average depth is 59 meters (195 feet) and its maximum depth is 229 meters (750 feet). The Saginaw River basin is intensively farmed and contains the Flint and Saginaw-Bay City metropolitan areas. Saginaw Bay, like Green Bay, contains a very productive fishery.





The Lake Huron Binational Partnership effort focuses on pollution reduction activities in areas of obvious importance, such as Areas of Concern (AOCs), and directly pursues on-the-ground activities to protect areas of high-quality habitat within the Lake Huron basin. Existing stakeholder and agency forums are used as much as possible to support the goals of the Partnership. The Partnership maintains a close association with the Remedial Action Plan efforts in AOCs, the Great Lakes Fishery Commission’s Lake Huron and Lake Huron Technical Committees, the State of the Lakes Ecosystem Conference (SOLEC), and domestic efforts that support the Partnership.
