The Village of Ephraim has been consulting with AECOM on two potential projects to provide increased shorefront protection from record high Lake Michigan water levels. It is expected that the Board of Trustees will vote to increase the scope of the firm’s work beyond initial due diligence. One of the options is the construction of a sheet pile wall that could cost as much as $500,000. Administrator Brent Bristol says that could force the village to push other projects back, but Ephraim remains in an excellent financial position.
The next Board of Trustees meeting is set for Tuesday.
