Question:
How many gallons of water are in Lake Superior?



Replies:
It turns out that there is so much water in the basin of Lake Superior, that we don't express the number in gallons, but rather in cubic miles! That volume is estimated at 2,935 cubic miles! If you want to convert that into gallons anyway, that would be interesting to do, too!

Thanks for asking!
