Waterfront properties facing big time land erosionĀ 

Near record high Lake Michigan water levels has kept construction companies busy placing rock along Door County’s shoreline this summer to stop land erosion.  Mike Kahr of Death’s Door Marine in Ellison Bay says he and his crews are working six to seven days a week to keep up with the demand.



Kahr adds that even though water levels should start receding this fall, more severe conditions, like high-velocity winds, are likely to cause even more erosion later in the year.  He notes that besides the regular permit which is needed, the Department of Natural Resources has been issuing emergency permits more readily as more shoreline property owners seek to protect their land investment.
