Friday, Seneca Intermediate students went to Seneca Lake to help with water research work on ecosystem sustainability.

Seneca Lake has high chlorides, salt, phosphorus, and blue-green algae caused by excessive nutrient flow.

Students gathered data on lake water pH, dissolved oxygen, and mico-species count.

College researchers hope to work with local and regional stakeholders to protect this natural resource so it can be healthy and safe for future generations to enjoy.
