Wastewater treatment at risk from Lake Michigan's rising waters

Predictions from federal officials of continued rising water levels on Lake Michigan have the City of Kewaunee working to protect municipal utility systems.  The city set up a task force to look into solutions to respond to rising lake levels.  Those efforts include protecting electrical systems near the harbor and the wastewater treatment plant on the Kewaunee River. City Administrator Fred Schnook says the lift stations or pumping systems used to transport sewage are a particular concern.




Schnook says those efforts are at the mercy of changing winds as well as rising lake levels.
