Project Title & Description
Presque Isle beaches-Bacteria & Cladophora
This project supports the Great Lakes Restoration Initiative and the Great Lakes Water Quality Agreement, pursuant to Public Law 111-88. Specifically, this project will utilize beach sanitary surveys and molecular techniques to determine the extent to which weather, changes in water chemistry, and nutrient loads influence movement/transport of Cladophora and bacteria. This knowledge will allow for better beach management decisions at Presque Isle State Park's Lake Erie beaches.
