Check it out!...............NEW Owasco Watershed Network web-site

The Institute for the Application of Geospatial Technology at Cayuga Community College, Inc. (IAGT), under a grant provided NY State Senator Nozzolio, has created the OWN Internet portal. OWN (Owasco Watershed Network) was created to share information and connect people interested in the preservation and management of the watershed. To quote the web site further; "OWN is a portal that connects widely varied information and data of interest, importance, and influence to the protection of the lake". I was very impressed with the format and amount of information already available on the site. There are some pretty cool features like the Owasco Watershed viewer. Click our link below to see what OWN is all about.

Please note that the site is still under development and the developers are looking for people to try it out and leave their comments and suggestions.

Thanks for the kind words, Lakeman!

We encourage those who follow the OWLA blog to login to the Owasco Watershed Network(OWN) and see what it's all about. Make sure to check out the 'Communty Articles,' forum, Watershed Viewer, and all of the other gadgets.

Also, the Owasco Watershed Inspector has a presence on OWN. Concerned watershed citizens can check out her page, contact her with questions or concerns, and even send her photos of their concerns.
