        Erosion caused by high water and strong winds is carving away dunes that support homes along Lake Michigan. Author: Phil Dawson Published: AM EDT Octo The water level in Lake Michigan is near all-time high levels right now. The rise to current lake levels over the last several years has led to significant erosion of the Lake Michigan shoreline. Unfortunately, this loss of ground has resulted in failure of shoreline structures including stairways, decks, and .

Soil Erosion Permit and Application Information. Any earth change/disturbance over one (1) acre in size and/or within feet of a water of the state, (lake, stream, wetland, drain) within Wayne County needs a Soil Erosion and Sedimentation Control (S.E.S.C.) Permit.

        The erosion problem, Dixon says, isn’t the high waves alone, but that the waves are sitting atop Lake Michigan water levels almost three feet taller than the long-term average for October. Erosion of soil into a lake also causes the water to become turbid, or cloudy. Loss of water clarity makes feeding difficult for fish and wildlife species that rely on sight for pursuing their prey. Many property owners on developed shorelines have replaced native shoreline plants with turfgrass, which has a .

Where there is erosion, pollutant concentrations are even higher. Keep in mind that many city storm drains flow to. long-term effect of a major change in land-use. The methods employed here could be widely applied to lakes and used for comparison of the effects of land-use upon erosion rates in various regions of the United States (e.g.

Under the pressures of overgrazing, deforestation, and irrational reclamation for agriculture production purpose, vegetation was degraded and destroyed in desertification-prone land areas, steppes were overgrazed and degraded in large.

How do I use plants to stabilize my pond bank. Wetland plants established on the shoreline are a preferred method for stabilizing pond banks, and they provide many benefits beyond erosion prevention.

The deep, robust root systems of these plants bind soils in the area where the majority of erosion is occurring, just below the water surface. Slopes that adjoin wetlands, stream sides, lakesides, shorelines and other waterfronts are another issue. These areas serve as buffer zones between land and water.

If your slope affects a watershed, get advice from a water mitigation expert or conservation agency. C., as long as the Department's supply lasts. After this supply is exhausted, publications may be obtained from the Superintendent of Documents, Government Printing Office, Wash-ington, D.

We are developing a new, dynamic, and user-friendly website that won’t be ready until late summer. Roads on ranch lands and those leading to rural and suburban parcels may also contribute to sediment problems in a watershed.

Surface erosion from roads can produce chronic sources of fine sediment which can diminish salmon and steelhead spawning success (Cedarholm et al., ). The Lake Michie Dam was designed by William Piatt, and was part of a series of public works projects to upgrade the water supply and treatment in the later part of the s.

The construction of the Dam shifted Durham's water supply away from the Eno River to the Flat River. Storm-driven waves on a near-record-high Lake Michigan have eaten away at the shore, leaving some homes a few feet from plunging over a cliff.

Anthropogenic activities and land use/cover change (LUCC) have greatly increased soil erosion and non-point source (NPS) pollution loading in many watersheds, which can have significant impacts on lake ecosystems [1,2,3].Many lakes in China are undergoing eutrophication and approaching their ecological limits [].Lake water deterioration can have serious effects on the health.

Erosion at Fish Lake in Maple Grove, Minnesota (photos right and below), was creating an undercut bank. Biologs were set into the undercut bank and native plants were planted in the soil above. The roots grew into the logs, stabilizing the shore, and halting the erosion.

Large scale efforts to control accelerated soil erosion and sedimentation, from both inland and shoreline sources, have been ongoing by a variety of state and federal agencies since the dust bowl conditions of the ’s.The findings presented here cover two types of erosion: Water (sheet & rill) erosion - the removal of layers of soil from the land surface by the action of rainfall and runoff; it is the first stage in water erosion.

Wind erosion - the process of detachment, transport, and deposition of soil by wind.• Understand that erosion is part of living on a Great Lake. When planning your project, remember that erosion is always occurring on the Great Lakes’ shorelines. Locate your structures a safe distance from the shoreline.

• Maintain the existing vegetation along the shoreline. When you cut or trim shrubs and trees, always leave the stump.
