Bluff erosion survey in Racine County

MOUNT PLEASANT — Lakefront residents in Racine County are one step closer to getting federal assistance.

Governor Scott Walker has sent a letter to the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers formally requesting federal help to control the bluff erosion problem in Mount Pleasant.

About a dozen homes are at risk of falling into Lake Michigan — along with roads and utility lines.

Officials say the erosion has accelerated at an unprecedented rate, in large part because of rising lake levels.

According to a statement from Mount Pleasant Interim Village Administrator Tim Zarzecki, a Department of Natural Resources representative will be at the Mount Pleasant Village Hall Thursday, July 14th from 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. to assist people with “urgent bluff stabilization projects.”

Zarzecki noted this is for urgent requests — and those with routine requests should use the normal DNR process.

Appointments must be made by calling the Mount Pleasant Village Hall at (262) 664-7820.
