High water levels raise village concerns

With water levels likely to remain elevated for the immediate future, the village of Ephraim is already looking ahead to what may need to be done. The Wisconsin Department of Transportation was forced to add about 400 feet of rock erosion barrier near Brookside Drive last month because culverts became clogged with rocks and sediment washed ashore. Village administrator Brent Bristol says they are now looking at other areas of the village possibly in need of extra attention.

Bristol says it is too early to nail down specific areas of focus until elevation data comes back, but highlighted Anderson Dock, the shorefront, and the village hall as sites of possible concern.
