LAKE MICHIGAN HIGH WATER EROSION ISSUES
With annual precipitation over the last couple of years like the early 1970’s and the previous highwater year of 1986 our current high-water levels are having some extreme effects on local property and homes. We understand that at times like this property owners can become extremely anxious and Even in panic as high-water along the Great Lakes shoreline and along rivers and inland Lakes rise. To help inform, educate and guide landowners through this time the Delta and Schoolcraft Conservation Districts had set an information/educational meeting at Bay College for April 30th. Due to the virus outbreak the meeting was cancelled, but Lake Michigan is still rising and a very real threat.
The Conservation District thought long and hard of how to reach a large group of landowners without having a meeting. We came up with the idea of informing the public by doing the presentation on the radio and promoting it through the newspaper. The presentation will include why we have the current conditions and the how and when to protect your property.
A power-point slide show is available for you, scroll down below, or for you to print (.pdf) and follow along during the radio broadcasts.
