Stevens Point officials look to upgrade seawall on Wisconsin River

STEVENS POINT, WI (WTAQ) - An upgrade to a seawall on the Wisconsin River at Stevens Point could wind up saving nearby residents thousands of dollars in flood insurance.

The upgrade may mean properties owned by more than 200 families are no longer in the river’s 100-year flood zone.

Stevens Point city officials have been working for 15 years to revise the map. The property owners have had to buy extra insurance in the past.

Improvements to the seawall near the New Page mill are already done.  Local officials are waiting on FEMA approval to redraw that map, removing the families from the flood zone.
