I am a boater more than a flyer on FSX, and found FSX sceneri to be very deficing in river and lake profiles.
Downloaded UTX Canada and US a while back (version 1.2) and I really like the fact that river profiles are as they should be.  I do however have a problem when I crash due to water not being level.   Recently upgraded UTX Canada to version 2.0 as suggested by FSDeveloper forum hoping to solve this issue but no change.   One place in particular that I would like to bring attention to on this post is Lake Huron. 
There is a huge elevation drop and a rise at N45d 00'.  South of this latitude the lake is at elevation 573, which is close to real word elevation per Google Earth (for what that is worth)
When moving North of this latitude there are 2 situations.
First, if you are East of longitude W82d 30', you go down to elevation 537'.  If you are West of this longitude, then you go up to elevation 596'
There is also another section that goes up to 596' between Latitude N44d 30' to 45d 00'.  it is locate from the US shore line to longitude W83d 15'
Next is a small area coming up to the Mackinac Bridge that goes back down to 573'

I was advised by FSDeveloper Forum to report this here.  Maybe this can be fixed in later release of UTX

Thanks for the report. Unfortunately as far as I am aware there are no plans for any future bug fix releases for the UTX series of products. The core development of FSX itself stopped in 2009, and even the Steam version of it released in 2014 has had no fixes for a long time. This leads to no commercial viability to produce new bug fix versions of third-party add-ons which were released in that similar timeframe.
