SPECIAL EVENT: Shoreline Stabilization Workshop
The Leelanau Conservation District is sponsoring a “Shoreline Stabilization Workshop” on Wed, April 8th, from 6 to 8 pm, at the Leelanau County Government Center, lower level community room.
With the Michigan water levels at record highs, this workshop is an opportunity to learn about regulations, shoreline protection options, and how to proceed through the permitting process.
Guest presenters include Mark Breederland, Michigan Sea Grant Extension Education, Northwest District; Robyn Schmidt, Water Resources Division of Michigan Department of Environment, Great Lakes and Energy (EGLE)-Cadillac District Office; Steve Christensen, Soil Erosion and Sediment Control Inspector/Leelanau County Drain Commissioner; and Dan Ariza, Soil Erosion and Sediment Control Inspector/Natural Resource Technician at the Leelanau Conservation District.
“It is likely that water levels on lakes Michigan and Huron will set new monthly mean record high levels over the next six months,” said John Allis, chief of the Great Lakes Hydraulics and Hydrology Office, Detroit District. “This sets the stage for coastal impacts and damages in 2020 similar to, or worse than, what was experienced last year.”
This is a free event for all landowners, contractors, landscapers and all interested parties. Please contact the Leelanau Conservation District office to register by calling 231-256-9783; or by email: firstname.lastname@example.org
