Winter erosion control limited for state park beaches

The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources will monitor high water levels and erosion on state park beaches along Lake Michigan over the winter.  Beyond that, DNR officials say there is not much more they can do to reduce erosion damage.  For example, erosion over the summer reduced access and detered visitors from portions of the beach at Whitefish Dunes State Park.   Michael Bergum, East Central District Park and Recreation Supervisor, says unless erosion poses a threat to park structures it's not practical to take any other actions.




Bergum reminds visitors that changing lake levels are a natural occurance.  Some years Lake Michigan has fallen drastically as well as risen.
