DEC, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and New York Sea Grant will host a public forum about environmental issues affecting Lake Ontario and the work being done under the Lakewide Action and Management Plan (LAMP).

The forum will be held at the Port of Rochester Terminal Building, 1000 North River Street, Rochester, NY 14612.

At the forum, scientists and managers will give presentations on water quality in Lake Ontario, the quality of Lake Ontario beaches, the lake's food web, restoration of native fish species, research on toxic contaminants in fish, and monitoring and restoration of the lake's coastal wetlands.

The forum will not address Lake Ontario water level regulation. The International Joint Commission is conducting separate events this summer to discuss water level regulation.

A second public forum will be held on August 22 in Oswego, NY and is posted separately on DEC's Events Calendar.
