PURE WATERS believes that good science is the key to understanding water quality issues and developing strategies to improve Seneca Lake’s health. Your generous donation will support this growth and facilitate our transition from a water monitoring program focus to a more balanced approach that also supports a smart set of watershed improvement projects. 

All of the funds raised by Seneca Pure Waters supports projects and programs that benefit the Seneca Lake watershed, the drinking water for residents, the economic value for business owners, and the quality of life for all who encounter it.  Some of these projects currently include:

A critical need is for our HAB (Harmful Algal Bloom) program. Next year, NYSDEC will stop performing toxin analyses.  This means that PURE WATERS will have to pay another qualified lab about $100 per sample for toxin tests.

We must continue this testing to help keep you and your pets safe!  In addition, we are starting two new exciting programs this year—Invasive Aquatic Species and Lake Friendly Living.



On behalf of the Pure Waters Staff, Members, & Volunteers, we
