Kewaunee shores up waterfront

Kewaunee Mayor Sandi Christman is leaving office after her current term wraps up later this year. When asked what issue stands out that she wishes she could have done more to address, the flooding downtown was her first response. The new mayor will inherit a task force set up to review options for the City of Kewaunee to mitigate damage to the marina and surrounding area.


Lake Michigan has seen similar water levels in the past, namely the late 1980’s, that did not see as many complications. Christman says experts believe that easterly winds have driven in the surf to the Kewaunee harbor in an unprecedented manner. She says they believe climate change is a factor.
