Cayuga Lake Watershed
Preliminary Watershed Characterization

The Cayuga Lake Watershed Intermunicipal Organization (IO) is leading the implementation of a Cayuga Lake Watershed Restoration and Protection Plan (RPP). The IO is a coalition of towns, villages and counties formed for the purpose of protecting the watershed. To that end, the IO produced a Preliminary Watershed Characterization. The Characterization reflects extensive comments received in conjunction with public meetings in January 2001 and February 2000. The full report is available below.

A limited number of CD-ROM versions of the Preliminary Characterization have been distributed. Supplemental instructions on using the CD are available (see CD-ROM Instructions).

If you know of a forum where a member of the Intermunicipal Organization could give a presentation on the management planning process and the watershed issues that have been identified to date, please contact:

Darby Kiley, Watershed Project Manager
