The City of Algoma is looking to make improvements to its harbor and beach this summer. The recently completed second phase of a harbor sediment study took a look at the total daily load that comes in from the Ahnapee River and Lake Michigan. City Administrator Jeff Wiswell says the study goes further than just determining where the sediment is coming from and the impact to the Algoma harbor.
Wiswell says the city of Algoma has already secured two grants, one from the Environmental Protection Agency and another one from the Fund for Lake Michigan. Those grants will help fund project engineering to deal with storm water issues facing the city and some minor redesigning on Crescent Beach.
