LaSalle Park flooding issue resolved

A perennial flooding issue along Lower LaSalle Road near the park entrance in southern Door County has been solved. The Town of Clay Banks along with the Door County Facilities & Parks Department began to remedy the standing water issue last week. Facilities and Parks Director Wayne Spritka says the issue had more to do with past development than high water levels.



Town Chair Mike Johnson asked for assistance to get the stormwater to flow back to nearby Lake Michigan, like in the past. Door County agreed to pay for the labor costs while Clay Banks paid for a culvert. Ditch work was completed Monday to allow the free flow of water.
