Homeowners and public infrastructure are being strained by high water levels on Lake Michigan in the Door Peninsula. Area Engineer for the Lake Michigan Office of the Army Corps of Engineers Robert Stanick says the amount of work needed is piling up.
Stanick says things are further complicated by the fact that all offices in the Great Lakes District are seeing the same increase. The district than must fight with other regions of the country to get its share of the overall Corps budget. The rapid rise in funding needs for the Great Lakes District has surpassed the budget available.
