The Sandy Side of Michigan

Lake Michigan Water Level Woes

Water Levels in Lake Michigan fluctuate greatly. These water levels were hitting historically low levels as recently as 2013.

Low Water Levels in 2013 were very concerning

Water levels have rebounded greatly into 2019. There is now a whole new set of concerns and challenges.

2019 Water Levels are now historically high and causing different challenges.

Both sides of this problem may be solved more appropriately by doing better design and engineering for water levels that fluctuate with the cycles of our Great Lakes.

Utilizing floating docks and tiered seawalls may be better term solutions to working with the fluctuating water levels rather than trying to adjust fixed structures.
