Watch for articles in the Adirondack Express related to preserving and improving the quality of our waters and safe boating. During the summer months, we run ads in the local papers to remind people of actions they should take to protect and improve the quality of our waters. We encourage property owners to adhere to all NY State laws when they use fertilizers on their lawns. We highly encourage everyone, particularly visitors, to get their boats inspected for invasive species before launching them and wash, drain and dry as necessary. We run ads reminding boaters of some of the laws pertaining to navigation on the lakes. We also run ads encouraging everyone who enjoys the Fulton Chain of Lakes to join FCLA. Preserving and Protecting our waters is everyone responsibility.
