Water level continues to rise on Lake Belle Taine

Email News Alerts

Lake Belle Taine is on the rise again.

One decade almost to the day after it rose to historic levels, the lake is once again flooding basements, swallowing up beaches and forcing property owners to put dock extensions into the water.


On a windy day, the causeway to Goat Island experiences waves lapping at the roadway.

The bridge leading to the island is perilously close to the water's surface again - and that's after it was raised 10 inches a decade ago.
