Shorewood — Giles Engineering Associates will drill four soil borings to a level 10 feet below the normal water level of Lake Michigan in an effort to determine why the northern portion of the bluff at Atwater Park has failed.
Consulting engineer Mustafa Emir said the firm has a long history of Lake Michigan bluff evaluations. Emir asked for proposals from four companies; two answered.
Trustee Sean Cummings wanted to make sure the work was done in two phases. While the north portion is slumping, he said, the south side appears to be stable.
The contract calls for Giles to study and make recommendations for the north slope, with additional study on the south slope if necessary.
The Village Board on Monday approved a $30,284 contract with the company.
