Lake Erie Center Facilities

The Lake Erie Center encloses 30,000 square feet of laboratory, classroom, office and support space. Major facilities include:

  • a wet-lab featuring a flow-through lake water system for maintaining living organisms and for conducting research relating to the physiology, production, and interactions of aquatic organisms
  • an instrumentation laboratory equipped to perform a wide variety of soil and water analyses
  • a geographic information and database laboratory with a satellite downlink for gathering, archiving and analyzing regional environmental data

Supplementing these core facilities are 12 laboratories assigned to individual researchers, offices for faculty and students, classrooms, a library, a public lobby and support facilities. The building itself reflects our goal as it is designed to fit harmoniously into the surrounding neighborhood, constructed for energy efficiency from recycled materials and is landscaped with native vegetation. The front of the building features a constructed wetland.
