Water Quality Study of The Finger Lakes

The files listed below are parts of a report entitled "Water Quality Study of the Finger Lakes", which details work conducted by the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation, Division of Water over the past several years. The report is composed of two related components as follows: (1) Synoptic Water Quality component, and (2) Sediment Core component. The files are all in Adobe© Acrobat Portable Document Format (PDF).

Each portion of the report [e.g., chapter(s)] is included in a separate file because some of the files are quite large. Alternatively, the report is available in two parts (see the final two files listed below).

If you have any questions regarding this study, please contact Clifford W. Callinan, P.E. at 518-402-8135
