On April 16-17, 2007, the Tom Ridge Environmental Center at Presque Isle State Park in Erie, PA held a conference to discuss the beach closures due to high E. coli counts at Presque Isle State Park. The goal of the conference was for the Presque Isle officials and other local departments to get feedback on the current management practices for beach closures at the park. The feedback came from several experts who shared their experiences, opinions, and ideas on beach closures with park officials and local departments. The conference was conducted in a workshop format with presentations and an open discussion with a panel of experts.
