*Toxics Targeting's Project: Southern Cayuga Lake Preliminary Watershed Characterization: A Differential GPS - GIS Project.

The Southern Cayuga Lake Watershed Project was created from concern for the water quality in that drainage basin. The primary short term goal was to identify known or potential sources of pollution within the watershed in order to alleviate and eliminate them. The primary long term goal was to sustain a healthy Cayuga Lake for the future.

The Cayuga Lake Watershed Management Plan Technical Committee presentation will discuss how pollution sources were located with a differential Global Positioning System (GPS) utilizing base station data, spatially correcting any data necessary, providing quality assurance and integrating all of the field observations into a Geographic Information System (GIS).

If appropriate, Toxics Targeting would like to discuss how it might assist with the watershed management project. The web site for the project is www.toxicstargeting.com. If you have any questions that I might be able to answer before the meeting feel free to contact me, 607-273-3391, marshall_ballard@hotmail.com, or toxtarg@toxicstargeting.com.
