The flooding of parking lots and boat launches at the Kewaunee Marina is causing more challenges than just the launching of watercraft. Near-record, high water levels in Lake Michigan have impacted the Kewaunee harbor and river shoreline. Kewaunee Marina Coordinator Melody Lacey says land erosion is another concern they have been dealing with daily.
Lacey says the high water has been a deterrent for boaters looking to launch their watercraft but Kewaunee Marina permanent seasonal slip owners are not experiencing any issues with their dock boats. Water levels could rise another foot by mid-July before subsiding, according to Lacey.
