The Owasco Lake Watershed inspector said the foam shown in this photo indicates that manure from a nearby Twin Birch Dairy farm field was washed into Dutch Hollow Brook tributary during last week’s heavy rain. The photo was taken by the watershed inspector as part of an ongoing investigation into the run-off pollution that entered both the Skaneateles and Owasco lake watersheds.
A local diary farm was charged with violating state water quality standards after last week’s heavy rains allegedly washed manure off a field and into a tributary feeding the Owasco and Skaneateles lake watersheds.

Dear Citizens and friends of the Town of Schroeppel and Village of Phoenix,
Thanks for all of the help and support you gave. We were able to keep mining from spoiling our town, and most importantly, our water supply. We need your help once again to pay the lawyer we hired to ensure our position if the vote had not gone in our favor. The bill came to just over $5000.00 and we are asking each family to make a $10.00 donation to the Pleasant Lake Association, who will be writing the final check. Of course, we will accept a donation of any size that you would like to make.
The fastest and easier way to make a donation is online through PayPal. Even if you don't have a PayPal account, you can still donate using a credit or debit card. Click the button below to donate online
