Lake Warren really did exist a long, long time in the past.
A pre-Cambrian time period of the Great Lakes region,
resulted in Lake Warren’s creation from glacial melt water.
The Michigan Basin is a layered pattern of sedimentary rocks
similar to a set of common household nested mixing bowls.
Michigan has gravity anomaly’s or “strong gravity high” areas
from partly developed crustal rift with block faulting combined
with extensive volcanic layers, and sedimentary bed fills.

The green line you see on this illustration is the
remnants of the ancient glacial Lake Warren.
Six major ice sheets advanced across the Michigan region
probably beginning as early as 2.4 million years ago.
These events helped create the complex Michigan Basin.
The glacial episodes of ice advancement and thawing water cycles
scoured, scraped and gouged the surface of the earth
creating the lakes we know today. This series of
glacial lakes left behind tell tale signs of lake sediments,
ancient spillways and channels, beach ridges, deltas, and old shorelines.
Our neighbor to the West is Oakland County, and in a modern age,
it is covered with concrete driveways, parking lots and roads,
forcing all the rainwater underground into drainage pipes which
flow through neighboring cities like Warren.
