    “Less water in the 67-kilometer-long lake means less weight pressing down on the surrounding terrain, so Earth’s crust has rebounded upward—a faster, smaller-scale version of what happened when massive ice sheets melted at the end of the last ice age.”

    It probably isn’t the weight of the water so much as the changes in soil structure that take place when the earth is no longer supersaturated with water. Sometimes I wonder people ever experience the outdoors anymore.
