Warnings in the Water by Ryan Smith

Thursday, April 27

“The Erie region holds great promise and potential, but is faced with significant challenges both now and in the coming years,” said Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection Great Lakes Region Chief Tim Bruno. One of the chief protectors of Lake Erie’s health and wellbeing, Bruno a member of Erie Reader’s 2016 40 Under 40 class.

That said, he has added, “it’s up to Erie’s younger generations to buy into a shared vision, find solutions to our problems through a fresh perspective, and have the determination and persistence to follow through and build this community into a Pennsylvania success story.”

Bruno’s work has him coordinating water policy issues with other Great Lakes states and provinces and representing Pennsylvania’s priorities on water use and water quality; prioritizing and managing funding for various Lake Erie water initiatives; and working closely with local and county governments, other state agencies, and nonprofit organizations to further the goals of the DEP’s water protection programs. So, his perspective on the state of Erie County’s environment is worth listening to.

That perspective will be shared in fuller detail when Bruno presents a free discussion on the topic on Thursday, April 27 as part of the Jefferson Educational Society’s 2017 spring lecture series.

“Bruno will address the State of Erie County’s Environment, exploring the region’s water quality and water use, urban and agricultural land practices, and more to discuss where Erie County’s been and where it’s going,” according to JES.

Again, worth hearing for anyone who’s interested in – or concerned about – where we’re all headed water-wise. – Ryan Smith
