The Door County Land Use Services Department is taking calls about beach erosion daily. That comes after several summers of hardly taking any calls at all. Calls looking for advice on dealing with erosion came in as water levels on Lake Michigan began rising. Department director Mariah Goode says anyone looking to control erosion impacts may need permits from the county and the State of Wisconsin.
Goode also says lakefront property owners should check with city, township or village officials to see whether local permits are required for any work related to erosion control.
