High lake levels make for dangerous breakwaters

Record high water levels in Lake Michigan have made for dangerous conditions on the breakwaters along the lakeshore in Door and Kewaunee County.  Fortunately relatively calm conditions earlier this week allowed for people to safely enjoy the tall ships from the breakwater in Sturgeon Bay and Algoma.  Cindy Jarema, Deputy Chief of Operations for the Army Corp of Engineers, offers some advice for anyone venturing out on the piers and breakwater this summer.



Jarema says the breakwaters were designed for navigation rather than recreational purposes.  She says although the public is not restricted in walking on the breakwater, instances have occurred in the past where the Corp of Engineers in coordination with the local community put up barriers closing any access due to safety concerns.
