Record low water levels and the sediment on the marina bottom cause major problems for the boaters in this area.

To avoid these issues, the State of Michigan recently awarded the city of Menominee a waterways grant of $1.2 million which will be used for the cleanup project.

Regarding the marina shoaling, Menominee City Manager Michael Kramer stated: “Ninety percent of it is sand. And the other ten percent is organic material.
