The ODNR Office of Coastal Management website is a good source of information for many beach health indicators, including beach access (also see here), beach water quality, and beach ecology (focusing on wetlands ecology). There is general information on beach erosion, beach fill and shoreline structures, with useful links to additional information sources for these indicators.

Particularly useful are the Coastal A-Z and Beaches in Ohio links.

The Ohio Coastal Atlas Project suite of resources was developed to provide coastal decision makers, professionals, educators, interest groups and the general public with information about Lake Erie and its watershed.

There are links for many informative publications and laws and regulations.

Also see ODNR's Coastal News.
