ST. JOSEPH — The final piece of the puzzle to have continuous erosion protection along Lake Michigan between the St. Joseph water plant and Silver Beach was put into place Monday.

St. Joseph city commissioners approved an agreement with the last three property owners, with each of them agreeing to pay $38,940 to fund 33 feet of a rock barrier, or revetment, to stop erosion due to high water levels.
