Sign our petition for support of Owasco Lake

OWLA needs your help!
The OWLA Board of Directors has put together a petition asking the Town of Owasco and the City of Auburn to support the Watershed Inspector positions and the more water testing.

Details of the petition:

"We, the undersigned, who use Owasco Lake for our drinking water and recreational use, petition the City of Auburn, Town of Owasco, and Cayuga County, to work together to protect and restore our lake.  We want ongoing comprehensive and effective coordination and adequate and sustainable funding to support Owasco Lake Watershed public policies and land use management practices, including: 1. an expanded watershed inspection program; 2.  restart of our year-round professional water testing and analysis program; 3. prompt enforcement  and stoppage of all man-made sources of pollution entering Owasco Lake and its tributaries; 4. restoration of Owasco Flats to its original filtering function; and, update, and full implementation of the 10 year old region-wide Owasco Lake Watershed Management Plan.”

Please come to our next Board meeting on Wednesday August 4th at 7pm at the Sprinside Inn or contact a OWLA board member to get a copy of the petition to sign.
