Rensselaer County Water Reports

Citizens Statewide Lake Assessment Program (CSLAP) Reports

CSLAP reports are created from data collected by sampling volunteers from member lake associations. The data collected from May through October is primarily related to lake eutrophication. Lake reports are not available for all CSLAP lakes. Reports will be added annually. Reports from 1997 through 2010 can be found on the New York State Federation of Lake Associations (NYSFOLA) website. For historical reports (before 1997) please contact the Division of Water.

Citizens Statewide Lake Assessment Program (CSLAP) Scorecards

Information from CSLAP reports and other sources is combined to create a scorecard to provide a quick and simple summary of sampling results. Scorecards are not available for all CSLAP lakes. Scorecards will be added annually. Scorecards first developed for CSLAP in 2010 are found on the New York State Federation of Lake Associations (NYSFOLA) website. For CSLAP lakes sampled since 2011, scorecards can be found below.
