Weiden Lake is entering it's ninth consecutive year in the
"Citizens Statewide Lake Assessment Program" (CSLAP).
This program trains local residents to collect, process, and ship lake
to the "Upstate Freshwater Institute" for lab analysis. Data is
compiled and reports generated by the
NYS Department of Environmental Conservation. Monitoring of
the Lake will help ensure the excellent quality
of the Lake remains excellent. For more information, go to the "Conservation"section
of this web site.
Last year, observation and testing for toxic algae was added to the

financial, legal, and infrastructure concerns.
Many thanks to Richard Marcel, John Fischer, Linda Carella, Sue Lohr,
Brandi Merolla, Arnold Melman, John Schulman for their outstanding work.
