How does CSLAP benefit Duck Lake? What I can say about CSLAP is this. Lake data collected by CSLAP volunteers serves many purposes:
1. educates lakefront property owners, lake users, and citizens, 2. adds to the statewide lake database (a long-term DEC data set), 3. contributes to water quality management plans and reports for CSLAP lakes, 4. and supports many DEC programs and activities.
Volunteer-collected data are used in many DEC programs. The data has been used in support of individual lake and statewide management decisions, water quality listings, and the development of management plans for CSLAP lakes.
CSLAP data have been used for the following DEC programs:
· Lake Classification and Inventory (LCI) to identify lakes for detailed assessments · Impaired Waterbodies 303(d) uses the information for listed lakes and to develop Total Maximum Daily Load (TMDL) which Duck Lake is on the 303d list for Phosphorus · Nutrient criteria development uses CSLAP data from across NY state – this is a type of analysis that helps determine appropriate criteria for a water use · Priority Waterbody List (PWL) is supported by the CSLAP waterbody assessments · 305(b) Water Quality Report uses the regional and statewide data in the biannual report to Congress about the status of lakes in New York State · Algae control and nuisance weed control uses the information to evaluate permits issued and other lake management actions · Invasive Species Council uses CSLAP information to verify invasive species distribution documented in the iMapInvasives database · Blue-green harmful algal bloom information is collected and documented through the program
These are some of the uses the DEC has for CSLAP data, Duck Lake included. These don’t offset the particular issues you’re seeing now but Michele Wunderlich’s offer for FLLOWPA funds to help cover costs will help the financial end. I’ll see what I can do about interns or ways to make the volunteering for time and user friendly.
What I see as most important is maintaining the long-term data and using your data in development of Duck Lake’s TMDL in the future. I’ve attached a TMDL fact sheet if you’re not familiar.
