Wall Going Up to Stop Flooding

(New Buffalo, MI) - A wall will be going up in New Buffalo to help with flooding

caused by Lake Michigan being so high.

The four-foot high wall will run along the Galien River near the beach.

The idea is to keep the river from spilling into the beach parking lot and across

Whittaker St. on the north side of the bridge.

City Manager Dave Richards says the wall will be constructed out of concrete blocks weighing four-thousand pounds apiece.

The river has been running over its banks when strong northerly winds push the high lake water into the channel.

The wall is costing over $5,000.
