Engineers to study coastal processes causing challenges for Sunset Bay

Mon, October 09, 2023 1:47 PM | Kathy Burmaster (Administrator)

Chautauqua County Soil and Water Conservation has partnered with PROOF Projects to study the Lake Erie shoreline from Silver Creek to Cattaraugus Creek to understand the coastal processes that contribute to the challenges in our community including flooding, habitat loss, and the degradation of our beaches through erosion and non-sand materials such as stones and woody debris.  This study will take place between now and the summer of 2024 and will result in recommended natural solutions that will enhance beach health, improve recreational access, preserve fishing habitat and mitigate impacts of lakeshore flooding. 

Photos (along with the date) of flooding or of how the shoreline used to look are needed to support the study and can be sent to 

Please send all photos by October 31, 2023.
