Speaker: Adam Bechle, WI Sea Grant, Coastal Engineering Outreach Specialist

Lake Superior’s water level was above average for eight years and set new monthly records in 2019 and 2020.  High water levels combined with large coastal storms have affected beaches, bluffs, coastal homes and critical infrastructure across the Great Lakes. The presentation will provide an update on the current water level conditions on the Great Lakes, discuss the process behind water level changes and coastal erosion, and describe some of the options that coastal landowners can take to address these issues.
