The public is invited to join FLOW on Tuesday, June 29, from 1:00 p.m. to 2:15 p.m. Eastern for a webinar—Managing High Water & High Tension along the Great Lakes Shoreline—that will provide frontline, scientific, regulatory, and legal insights into efforts at the state and local level to manage high waters and high tensions along Michigan’s Great Lakes shoreline.
While Great Lakes waters have receded from their 2019-2020 historic high levels, surface waters remain higher than their long-term average—except for Lake Ontario. Concerns remain regarding high water levels, construction of seawalls and other armoring, and impacts to public and private property, the environment and wildlife, and public trust rights of people to safely access the shoreline and water.
Presenters will include:
- Jim Olson, Founder and Senior Legal Advisor, FLOW
- Jerrod Sanders, Assistant Director in the Water Resources Division of the Michigan Department of Environment, Great Lakes, and Energy
- David Bunte, Supervisor of Chikaming Township in Berrien County in Southwest Lower Michigan
- Scott Howard, Attorney and Partner, at the law firm of Olson, Bzdok, & Howard in Traverse City
The free webinar will include a question-and-answer session with the panel.
