Steve Lewandowski, the recently hired Cayuga Lake Watershed Steward will be
formally introduced to the IO. A brief question and answer period will follow.
Discussion of this item will be tabled following a statement by S. Hurlbut
regarding Cayuga County’s efforts to persuade other counties in the
watershed to enact county-wide septic testing requirements.
Priority Issues Ranking
The Technical Committee will collect municipal priority issue matrices from IO
representatives. The final tabulation of municipal scorings will take place
over the summer. Recommendations made in the draft management plan
directly address the highest scoring issues as determined through this ranking
Joint Strategy Meeting
In recognition of the fact that a joint strategy for meeting common goals
between the IO and the Network would benefit both groups, J. Lozano will
propose a meeting between representatives of both groups for the purpose of
developing such a strategy.
The NYSDOS has required preparation of interim recommendation lists during the
second year of the project so that the watershed may take advantage of funding
opportunities that arise while the Plan is being prepared. The Technical
Committee has completed its review and ranking of proposed water quality
projects and will present its ranking recommendations to the IO for endorsement.
members will have an opportunity to comment on the draft bylaws made available
at the May IO meeting prior to voting on their acceptance. The proposed bylaws
are also available for review on the web at
