Falling water levels exposing Lake Michigan beach space

Water levels are dropping on Lake Michigan and that's exposing more sandy beach space in Door and Kewaunee Counties.  The Army Corps of Engineers says the current lake levels are down 11-inches from March 2020.  Summer visitors will see a larger beach at Whitefish Dunes State Park near Sturgeon Bay.  Park Superintendent Erin Brown-Stender, however, says the main beach access point will remain closed while repair work is being done.


More sandy space is also being seen at Crescent Beach in Algoma.  Public Works Director Matt Murphy says receding waters have left the beach strewn with driftwood, which can now be more easily removed.


The Corps of Engineers this summer will also be repairing portions of the Algoma Pier damaged by water erosions.
