The Tompkins County Water Resources Council will host the next in a series of public meetings to discuss progress with the Cayuga Lake Modeling Project on Thursday, July 17, at 7:00 p.m. in the Space @ GreenStar, 700 West Buffalo Street, Ithaca.  Representatives from New York State DEC will lead the meeting, which will include an update on the overall project status followed by review of the technical findings to date. 

Research scientists from the Upstate Freshwater Institute will discuss the preliminary results of their extensive 2013 water quality monitoring program of Cayuga Lake and the tributary streams, with a focus on phosphorus sources and impacts.  Cornell Professor Todd Walter will review the progress of the Department of Biological and Environmental Engineering's Soil and Water Lab in constructing the Cayuga Lake watershed model.  His research team is exploring approaches to incorporating site-specific processes, such as stream bank erosion and farming practices, on phosphorus transport from the watershed to the lake. 

The NYSDEC representatives will moderate questions and lead an open discussion of the Cayuga Lake Modeling Project.  All are welcome to attend.
