WEBINAR: "PROTECTING YOUR SHORELINE PROPERTY"

The Great Lakes Coalition will host a webinar "Protecting Your Shoreline Property" on Wednesday, April 28, 2021, from 7:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. (EDT).  The webinar will feature comments by Jerrod Sanders, Assistant Director within the Michigan Department of Environment, Great Lakes, and Energy (EGLE) Water Resources Division and members of his regional staff that issue the permits to regulate what property owners can legally do to protect their shoreline property.

Many shoreline property owners are or soon will be evaluating the condition of our property along the Great Lakes after this past winter.  Do you need to take action?  Did your revetment/seawall survive?  Did more of your bluff erode?

EGLE staff will make a brief 30-minute presentation on the permit process and shoreline protection options.  For the bulk of the webinar they want to answer questions that property owners may have regarding:

  • protecting your property from further damage
  • selecting a contractor
  • evaluating the best options/cost/effectiveness
  • filing the permits you may need
  • timeframe
  • possibly avoid purchasing flood insurance (which would be needed if you get a loan to pay for the project)

WHEN:  WEDNESDAY, APRIL 28, 2021

TIME:  7:00 P.M. TO 8:30 P.M. (EDT)
