    Rivers and streams are created by precipitation, melting ice or springs. These moving bodies of water flow through channels in which the bottom is known as the bed and the sides as the banks. Rivers can be wide and deep, and many empty into larger bodies of waters such as oceans or lakes. The Great Lakes are the collection of freshwater lakes located in northeastern North America, on the Canada–United States border, which connect to the Atlantic Ocean through the Saint Lawrence Seaway and the Great Lakes ting of Lakes Superior, Michigan, Huron, Erie, and Ontario, ay form the largest group of freshwater lakes on Earth comprising 21% of the world's surface fresh Source: EPA.

    The Great Lakes (French: les Grands Lacs), or the Great Lakes of North America, are a series of interconnected freshwater lakes in the upper mid-east part of North America, on the Canada–United States border, which connect to the Atlantic Ocean through the Saint Lawrence comprise Lakes Superior, Michigan, Huron, Erie, and Ontario. Source: EPA. When a navigable stream is dammed, the resulting lake is a public lake, and the public may boat and fish on all of the lake's waters, not just that part directly above the streambed. Therefore, a property owner may not fence off any portion of such a lake. 7 For other lakes, the test is whether the lake is navigable.
