South Haven homeowners losing land to rising waters

SOUTH HAVEN, Mich. (WOOD) — It's no secret Lake Michigan water levels are high. The lake is so high; however, several South Haven homeowners are losing their land to the lake. 

When Terry Caveney moved to South Haven nine years ago, things at her lakefront home looked a little different than they do now.

"That was all a huge beach," she said, pointing to water below.

She bought her house for its view of Lake Michigan, but the water has become an enemy.

Now, Caveney and other neighbors like her, are hopeful South Haven will approve plans to rebuild the bluff and beach below. Part of the work will include installing features that are designed to mitigate future damage.
