Cayuga Lake Watershed Network Stakeholders Survey

During the fall of 1998, a phone and written survey was conducted at the request of the Cayuga Lake Watershed Network and funded by FL-LOWPA, to determine what issues were of importance to a variety of stake holders in the Cayuga Lake watershed. The survey was undertaken, in order to discover priorities and concerns of the various constituencies and geographic areas within the watershed.
