Looking further out


Do you have a project in the Great Lakes for which you are looking for engineering and design assistance?  We will be conducting workshops where we will connect you with your state coastal zone management programs to develop and scope project ideas in 2024.

E-mail to receive more information about this process! Please note that projects need to be on public property (or properties accessible to the public).


We’d like to thank Mary Beth Armstrong, CSO Summer Intern 2023 for their work in developing these project summaries.


This work was funded by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration Office for Coastal Management in partnership with the Great Lakes Restoration Initiative.
