Featured events and projects

Watershed Summit


When: Thursday, April 19, 2018

Where: Seneca Falls Community Center, Seneca Falls NY

What: In 2016, the IO applied for a NYS Department of State grant to take the updated recommendations from the 2017 Restoration and Protection Plan, turn them into project ideas, and ready these ideas for applications for funding. The current priority of the IO is to work with watershed muncipalities to envision projects and develop project plans. The main goal of the watershed summit was to inform municipal officials of the grant application support available from the IO.

If your municipality is interested in completing a water quality project and would like support during the grant application process, please email contact@cayugawatershed.org
