Residents able to comment on conservation approach

Door County residents have a chance to influence how the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources approaches caring for the 300 miles of  Door peninsula shoreline. The DNR is hoping residents leave thoughts on their strategic analysis for existing and alternative coastal conservation practices. The DNR reported in a press release that changing water levels and the intensity of storm events have posed a significant challenge to managing Lake Michigan and Green Bay. 

 

The DNR also reported that the coastal erosion and flooding have led to an increase in applications for DNR waterway permits for placing stone revetment, jetties, and other types of structures along the shore. The rise in shoreland protection projects could potentially have negative environmental impacts such as the loss of fish habitat and disruption of natural resources. This analysis is an effort to educate decision-makers about current conditions and different ways to go about coastal management. People can comment on a draft outline touching on the topics discussed in the analysis and are asked to fill out an online questionnaire.
