Click here to view the North Shore Erosion Mapping Tool

Background

Coastal erosion impacts the Lake Superior North Shore community and environment by stressing Lake Superior water quality and nearshore biological communities through increased erosion and Coastal community infrastructure, economy, and resiliency considering increasing storm events. Current coastal erosion hazard mapping data does exist to mitigate and plan for stressors on the coastal community, but is not consistent, thorough, or readily available to the public. The goals of the Coastal Erosion Hazard Mapping (CEHM) project align with solving this problem through it’s key objectives:
  • A web-based mapping tool
  • Tool that can be used to identify the suitability for development
  • Lake Superior guide to living in the coastal zone
  • Common recommendations for all St. Louis, Lake, and Cook County property owners regarding conservation concerns/hazard erosion areas
  • A tool that is easily accessible to landowners, officials, decision makers, contractors, realtors
  • A plan and budget established for the tool to be maintained and updated
