The Froehlich Foundation has also provided funds necessary to continue and to expand the LGA water quality monitoring programs.
"The data collected from these monitors will help identify water quality trends and point out possible pollution hot spots that may require remediation," stated Emily DeBolt, LGA education and outreach coordinator.
DeBolt runs the volunteer monitoring programs for the LGA.
The 16 consecutive grant awards from the Froehlich Foundation represent over $5 million dollars worth of improvements to Lake George and the watershed.
"Our members' dollars go only so far in funding our efforts to protect Lake George," said Lender. "These funds will enable us to accomplish more projects on the ground and provide expanded programs around the lake."
The LGA is a not-for-profit membership organization of people interested in working together to protect, conserve, and improve the beauty and quality of the Lake George Basin. For more information, contact the LGA at 668-3558 or check out LGA on the web at www.lakegeorgeassociation.org
