INFOS Port Washington is the product of a project funded by the Wisconsin Sea Grant
program. The research and maintenance of this site is conducted by the
Environmental Fluid Mechanics (EFM) group of the Civil Engineering
Department at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Many parties have
acted to assist in the development of this site, including: Ozaukee
County, the City of Port Washington, and Wisconsin Coastal Management
The mission of this project is to combine and enhance information
about the water environment Port Washington, Lake Michigan. Currently,
there are many great resources available via the internet; however, much
of the information is scattered throughout the web, making it difficult
for one to obtain a clear picture of the current conditions. The hope
is that the information presented will aid visitors in making safe
decisions and act to enhance enjoyment of this beautiful place. The site combines real-time observations from various sources, as well as, present
nowcasting and forecasting guidance of waves, currents, water
temperature, and water levels near Port Washington.
