Schuyler County Water Quality Committee
"Seneca Lake," a painting by Tom Gardner
The purpose of the Water Quality Committee is to:
Act as a forum for discussion of water quality concerns in Schuyler County. It provides an avenue of opportunity where specific water quality problems can be discussed and potential solutions found.
Generate interest in and pursue funding to attack specific water quality problems in the county and educate the public about watershed management and its importance for maintaining high water quality in the future.
The committee, acting as an educational forum, reports only to itself on behalf of the water resources in Schuyler County.
