A Storm-water Implementation Plan, was developed for our four kettle lakes in 2017. This was funded through the National Fish and Wildlife, Chesapeake Bay Capacity Grant, under the administration of Syracuse University's Environmental Finance Center, in collaboration with Cortland County Soil & Water District. Plans were developed with public participation by Princeton Hydro LLC. You can see our plan here:
We are pleased to have a close working relationship and the support of Cortland County Soil and Water Conservation District.
While we received approval for our DEC application to treat our milfoil with ProcellaCOR. By the time the approval was received, it gave us a very small window to get treated. Due to the low level of milfoil growth this season, the Board elected to save the expense of treatment in 2023 and look at it again for 2024.
