Shoreline Restoration and Erosion Control

Residents of the Duluth/Superior Harbor and the North and South Shores of Lake Superior have watched their property being slowly eaten away by the rising lake levels and storm surges from Lake Superior. ┬áIn October 2019, Lake Superior reached within 1” of the all-time recorded high-water levels. There is no trend in sight for the lake level to recede as it normally does in the fall of the year.
