The Coast Guard’s Great Lakes air stations closed their seasonal air facilities in Muskegon, Mich., and Waukegan, Ill., on Sept. 6.

The air facilities are open during the traditional boating season, which runs from Memorial Day weekend to Labor Day, to provide enhanced search-and-rescue services due to the high volume of summer boaters off Chicago, Milwaukee and other southern Lake Michigan areas.
