A wealth of information was presented at Tuesday night’s public forum capping the two day harmful algal bloom summit in Syracuse.
Town of Owasco Supervisor and Chair of the Owasco Lake Watershed Management Council Ed Wagner said on Wednesday’s Finger Lakes Morning News it was two long days, but it was worth it.
He added it was important having international experts, including Dr. Tim Davis from Bowling Green University, on hand to offer their expertise.
Wagner admits battling the bacteria that creates the blooms is a complex fight.
Last week, the Department of Environmental Conservation tried something new.
The Syracuse summit was the second of Governor Cuomo’s four regional summits addressing the growing HAB problem across the state.
