Penn 7 Restoration Project Completed

Part of the Great Lakes Restoration Initiative, the project improved approximately 59 acres of terrestrial and aquatic habitat, on what was previously a confined disposal facility.  Penn 7 is an island area where sediment dredged from the Maumee River was deposited in the 1960’s and 1970’s. Located on the west side of the Maumee River, south of Bayview Park “the site now has the potential to be a fish and wildlife habitat, a downtown nature space, and an ecological asset to the community,” said Debra Shore, U.S. Environmental Protection Agency Region 5 Administrator.
