EGLE Second High Water Summit webinar April 28

Event date: 4/28/2020 5:00 PM - 6:30 PM Export event

EGLE Second High Water Summit webinar April 28

focus on shoreline processes, permitting

GRAND RAPIDS, MICHIGAN  ~~~  April 21, 2020  (LSN) The ad hoc Michigan High Water Action Team has scheduled a second High Water Summit webinar town hall for April 28 that will focus on Great Lakes shoreline erosion and permitting. Registration is open and limited to 1,000 attendees.

The webinar is open to the public, community officials, private property owners and businesses affected by Great Lakes shoreline erosion.

Presentations will be made by staff of the Michigan Department of Environment, Great Lakes, and Energy (EGLE); Dr. Guy Meadows of Michigan Technological University; Charlie Simon of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Detroit District Regulatory Office; Dan Dietz of Dietz House Moving of Muskegon; and Brian Majka of GEI Consultants in Grand Rapids. Topics will include permitting processes and alternatives for homes or critical structures that are in jeopardy.

The webinar is from 5-6:30 p.m. April 28 and will include ample opportunity after the presentations for questions and comments from the public. Register here.

The first High Water Summit webinar, which was March 26, had more than 750 attendees and covered a broad spectrum of high water impacts around the state. A recording of the webinar can be found at Michigan.gov/EGLEHighWater. Over the past six months, EGLE has participated in more than 30 community meetings around the state to discuss high water issues.

The Michigan High Water Action Team was formed during the Michigan High Water Coordinating Summit in February, which brought together state, federal and local officials, as well as representatives from tribal governments and groups that represent local units of government. A series of town halls is planned to inform Michigan residents of issues related to high water levels around the state with dates and topics to be announced as they are scheduled.

Along with organizing town halls, the multi-agency ad hoc Michigan High Water Action Team will also collaborate to:

  • Identify available assets that can be marshalled in response to high water incidents.
  • Coordinate communications across agencies and levels of government to ensure residents receive information in a timely, accurate and consistent fashion.

Michigan’s water levels are at their highest in more than two decades. From Detroit’s Belle Isle to the U.P.’s Keweenaw Peninsula, these exceptionally high water levels have caused millions of dollars in damage to private property and public infrastructure, including roads and state parks, impacted community water systems and caused public health concerns.

For more information on high water levels and resources such as fact sheets, FAQs, a link to the MiWaters permit portal, safety information and resources for permit holders, go to Michigan.gov/EGLEHighWater.

Very High Fire Danger Across Wisconsin

James Brown 0 1074 Article rating: No rating

MADISON, WISCONSIN  ~~~~~~~~  May 14, 2021  (LSN)  The Department of Natural Resources (DNR) is asking the public to stay vigilant and avoid burning because of very high fire danger across Wisconsin, particularly in the northern two-thirds of the state.

The increased fire danger is due to the low relative humidities expected across the state, with the lowest values expected across northern Wisconsin. Temperatures will be warm and the air over Wisconsin will be dry, which are weather conditions that aid in the spread of fires.
