Programs and Services
PennFuture is Pennsylvania’s watchdog for clean air, pure water, and a healthy climate. In Erie, we worked with 12 regional organizations to publish Our Water, Our Future: A Common Agenda for Protecting Pennsylvania’s Lake Erie Watershed, which provides a blueprint for protecting the watershed. The Lake Erie watershed provides drinking water to more than 240,000 people in Erie County, serves as the centerpiece for a booming tourism industry that brings in more than $1.2 billion annually to the region, and supports vibrant fishing and agriculture industries. We work with regional stakeholders to put protective measures in place now so that the region’s most important natural resource, our water, continues to support residents and businesses well into the future.
