Penn State Erie's Sea Grant To Focus On Ecology, Economic Development

The area surrounding the shoreline and Presque Isle, the Lake Erie watershed, is densely developed. While both wastewater and rainfall runoff are now generally routed to sewage treatment plants, this was not always the case. Past runoff has affected the coastal water and the bay.

Environmentally friendly development of manufacturing in the area and a study of the Park's uses are also planned under the grant. The park sees heavy traffic for an ecologically fragile environment. A study of who uses the park, where they come from and what they are looking for will help plan for future use. Tied in with all these studies is a component intended to educate the public about the lake, Presque Isle and the coastal area.

The Sea Grant initiative received another $100,000 from the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection, Pennsylvania Department of Conservation and Natural Resources and the Pennsylvania Governor's Office, and $50,000 from Penn State. The Behrend College plans to appoint an expert in coastal environments and an expert in coastal economic development to round out the staff of the sea grant and to head the studies.
