Did you know that 2,200 feet under Cayuga Lake, Cargill Deicing Technology mines road salt? Or that every day, brine-contaminated water flows into Cayuga Lake from the Portland Point area, along with phosphorous from nearby farms?
Cayuga Lake might look pristine, but it is threatened by industry and it is already showing signs of distress.
CLEAN, Cayuga Lake Environmental Action Now, is a group of Finger Lakes residents who want a clean lake and who are willing to educate everyone about how to protect it. We are affiliated with the Cayuga Lake Watershed Network.
We also want to hold the NYS Department of Environmental Conservation responsible for protecting a resource that belongs to ALL of us: Cayuga Lake - from the waves up above to the salt down below.
