Duluth Seaway Port Authority
Erie Pier was purchased by the Duluth Seaway Port Authority in 1979 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 (http://www.dsmic.org/print.asp?PageID=287) 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.
