Duluth Seaway Port Authority
Erie Pier was purchased by the Duluth Seaway Port Authority in the late 1970s from the Zenith Dredge Company for the purpose of constructing a Confined Disposal Facility (CDF). Today, the Port Authority operates the 89-acre Erie Pier as a recycling facility - termed a Placement and Reuse Facility (PRF) - and acts as local sponsor for all dredging projects in the harbor, working closely with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.
According to the Erie Pier Management Plan created by the Harbor Technical Advisory Committee/Duluth-Superior Metropolitan Interstate Council, dredged materials are sorted at Erie Pier (based on size) into two grades: coarse and fine.
