    So you are of the opinion Lake Michigan could cease to exist and no one,
    particularly the US Navy, would notice or be "mathematically" concerned?
    Perhaps the US Coast Guard might at least memo the Navy on that event after
    the steel works contacted them wondering why the iron-ore carriers coming
    down from Lake Superior were long overdue. 
    You might also note that many of the southwestern and southeastern sections
    of Indiana mentioned border on the Ohio River.  The Ohio, and lower part of
    the Wabash river were classified as navigable waters (my memory of this goes
    back decades) therefore came under the jurisdiction of the Coast Guard.
    With the USCG stretched thin these days, that may no longer be the case.
