Sturgeon Bay needs "No Wake" cooperation from boaters

To reduce the potential damage to shoreline caused by marine travel in Sturgeon Bay, the Sturgeon Bay Harbor Commission asks boaters to slow down and be mindful of the impact their vessel's wake can have on shoreline property. Gary Nault, chair of the Sturgeon Bay Harbor Commission and councilmember, says the extremely high water levels are impacting shorelines so much, residents are asking for an extension of the no-wake zones on the bay. He says the no-wake zone has expanded in the past and has been a hot topic the 15 years that he has been on the Harbor Commission.



Nault estimates that some city-owned property along the shoreline will cost over $650,000 to be repaired. He hopes by boaters operating responsibly and with courtesy to shoreline owners, some erosion can be curtailed, and no extension of the present no-wake zone will be needed.
