ABOUT THE PROJECT
Erosion, coastal storms and fluctuating water levels can threaten coastal properties and impair assets important to tourism and commerce. This project will provide resources and assistance to communities in Ozaukee, Milwaukee, Racine, and Kenosha Counties to plan and prepare for coastal hazards.
