An update from the Environmental Protection committee

— Amongst our monthly update on the improvements to Onondaga Lake, we discussed the issue of notifying the public about the conditions on the lake. It is vital to the public’s safety that dangerous conditions be reported as promptly as possible. Onondaga County has accepted a grant in the amount of $118,000 to implement a project referred to as the “Onondaga Lake and Tributary Water Quality Notification Program.” This will allow the county to establish a website which will provide the public with real time information on the status of the sewers and water quality conditions in the lake, especially during wet-weather events.
