Erie County Community Appearance Survey

As part of the affiliation process with Keep America Beautiful, a community appearance survey of Erie County must be completed. The purpose is to create a baseline of how littered our community is via a windshield survey, from a moving vehicle, which is then used to determine priority areas for work. This survey was conducted on Tue, Oct 4th, 2016. 

Erie County was divided into five Areas, based on watershed.

Within each Area, 10-16 Sites were selected along roadways, and three teams completed the survey. On a Scale from 1-4, 1 meaning "No Litter" and 4 meaning "Extremely Littered", Erie County has relatively little littered. This was only a windshield survey, so more litter or dumping might have been seen if the surveyors had walked the sites. However, here are the results of this initial survey:
