Pentwater pier closed due to ‘life-threatening’ conditions.



PENTWATER — The Pentwater Police Department posted on its Facebook page Wednesday, Aug. 23, that the Pentwater Pier is closed to foot traffic due to hazardous conditions.

“The weather conditions on Lake Michigan remain hazardous, consequently both the north and south piers have been closed to foot traffic today,” the post states. Waves are 3-5 feet.

“A high risk of swimming hazards means that dangerous waves and currents are expected along the shore. Swimming conditions may be life-threatening to anyone entering the water.”
