Open House - Dike Upgrade Project

Dike Upgrade Project Open House December 7
November 27, 2023

Meeting will be on Thursday, December 7, 2023 from 5:00pm - 7:30pm at the Memorial Hall.

The dike located along the Village’s waterfront currently provides flood protection for residents and visitors. This dike was constructed following the 1948 flood at a crest elevation that does not meet current design standards. The Village is undertaking upgrades to the dike to increase protection against inundation from high lake levels. Upgrades will include increasing the dike crest elevation and upgrading the wastewater treatment plant road to better withstand a large flood while allowing for access during emergency situations.

The consultants on the project, Northwest Hydraulic Consultants (civil/hydrotechnical engineers) and space2place (landscape architect) are looking for feedback from the public on conceptual design options and proposed plans for the upgrades. We would like to invite you to an open house Thursday, December 7th from 5:00pm – 7:30pm at the Memorial Hall to provide your input on these upgrades.
