Anglesey council has been told the 1.7 mile (2.4km) breakwater at Holyhead - the longest in Britain - is suffering from erosion to its rubble mound base.
Ferry company Stena Line which owns the structure estimated in 2013 that it was costing £150,000 a year in maintenance.
Consultations and a public meeting are being held to support the case for Welsh Government funding for repairs.
The Grade II-listed structure was opened in 1873 after 28 years of construction involving more than 1,300 workers.
Anglesey council said the rubble mound on which the wall stands has gradually been eroded by the constant wave action and could be breached within 15 years.
