Tony Friona

Tony Friona serves as a USACE Regional Working Group co-lead for the Great Lakes Restoration Initiative (GLRI). This Interagency partnership has provided Great Lakes (GL) Districts and ERDC with the opportunity to take on a number of complex applied science and engineering challenges over the last eight years. Current projects and research interest include: (1) Incorporation of EWN into Interagency near-shore strategies across the GL basin; (2) Promoting the beneficial use of dredged material to enhance coastal resiliency and reduce the cost of ecosystem restoration and environmental dredging projects; (3) Design and application of landscape scale wetland systems designed to optimize the reduction of phosphorous inputs and related harmful algal blooms to the GL.
