Washington D.C. – U.S. Senator Pat Toomey (R-Pa.) is lauding the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers' decision to allocate $1.5 million towards the Presque Isle State Park beach nourishment project in the FY21 Work Plan. Senator Toomey sent a letter earlier this year to the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers urging continued federal assistance to this project.
“Presque Isle State Park offers miles of beautiful coastline for over four million visitors annually. It is a natural treasure and an economic driver for northwestern Pennsylvania. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers' decision to continue much needed federal assistance will ensure that the beaches of Presque Isle are properly maintained for future generations. I was happy to offer my support for this important project.”
