KENOSHA, WI (WLIP)–Memorial Day weekend marks the unofficial start of summer and with warmer temperatures that means more opportunities for swimming.
But if your plan is to take a dip into Lake Michigan, you may want to think again.
17th District Alderman David Bogdala told WLIP’s Wake Up Kenosha that there are a number of factors to consider before jumping in.
Kenosha’s stretch of Lake Michigan has a number of deadly spots-including off the lighthouse pier and where the mouth of the Pike River meets the lake.
The Kenosha YMCA has a number of water safety tips at their website.
