AMI's Chad Scott part of core research team: Research Leading to Protection of the Duluth-Superior Port Wins National Award

The Wisconsin and Minnesota Sea Grant programs won the prestigious Research to Application Award at a recent biennial national conference. For a decade, the programs had been working with partners such as the port managers, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, U.S. Navy and researchers at universities to discover the cause of, and mitigation strategies for, an accelerated rate of corrosion of the Port of Duluth-Superior’s infrastructure. It’s estimated that the discovered fixes save at least $120 million in pier, wall and piling replacement costs.
