OWLA Watershed Symposium Returns Next Month


You’ll soon be able to get an update on the water quality of one of the Finger Lakes.

The Owasco Watershed Lake Association’s (OWLA) Bob Brower Scientific Symposium returns to Auburn Public Theater on March 9.

Ann Robson with OWLA told Finger Lakes News Radio that this year’s theme will be “Our Lake, Out Legacy” and focus on responding to environmental factors affecting the watershed.

There will be four speakers at the symposium. Ken Kudla will discuss how the Owasco Lake watershed fits into the larger Great Lakes Watershed; Auburn Director of Municipal Utilities Seth Jensen will explain how the city ensures fresh drinking water for the people of Auburn and surrounding areas; Kirsten Workman will showcase the history and evolution of agriculture and its effect on water quality in New York, and Dr Lisa Cleckner will discuss Hobart and William Smith Colleges’ buoy monitoring program on the lake.

Robson added that, after the success of last year’s hybrid model symposium, OWLA will continue to allow participants to attend either in person or via Zoom. The event will take place from 9:00a-12:00p at Auburn Public Theater. Whether attending in person or virtually, you’re asked to preregister by calling 315-704-5510 or visiting OWLA’s website.
