Does climate change cause lake levels to rise?

    On the contrary, climate change tends to cause a fall in water levels of lakes and rivers. Most lakes and rivers depend on melting snowpack, precipitation, etc to maintain its water volume throughout the year. Global warming, however, causes decreased precipitation, earlier melting times in the spring, and increased evaporation. All of these factors act to reduce the water level in lakes as a consequence of climate change.
