Conneaut Creek Great Lakes Fishery and Ecosystem Restoration (GLFER) – Sea Lamprey Barrier Project

Buffalo District
Published May 15, 2024
Expiration date: 6/15/2024

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) Buffalo District has conducted an environmental analysis in accordance with the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969, as amended. This Detailed Project Report and Environmental Assessment (DPR/EA) for the Conneaut Creek Great Lakes Fishery and Ecosystem Restoration – Sea Lamprey Barrier Project addresses the feasibility and potential environmental effects associated with the implementation of sea lamprey control alternatives for the proposed study area along Conneaut Creek, Erie County, Pennsylvania. This study was conducted under the authority of Section 506 of the Water Resources Development Act of 1992, as amended.

The DPR/EA evaluated various alternatives that would effectively limit sea lamprey migration into Conneaut Creek thereby reducing or eliminating the need for lampricide treatments. The Recommended Plan (Alternative 4a) is the National Ecosystem Restoration (NER) plan, which includes:

A seasonally operated adjustable low crest barrier that uses an Obermeyer gate and electrical barrier with trap and sort and jumping pool at Griffey Road to provide more efficient and effective means to prevent or significantly reduce the numbers of sea lamprey from reaching upstream spawning habitat in Conneaut Creek.
