Great Ecology is completing a water quality assessment and improvement project for Oakdale Lake in Hudson, NY. Working with local volunteers, Great Ecology developed a Citizen Scientist led water sampling program to understand existing water quality. Data collected by volunteers will be merged with additional sediment and benthic invertebrate sampling completed by Great Ecology to understand existing conditions and potential sources of water impairments. Great Ecology will identify strategies for the Friends of Oakdale Lake to coordinate with public and private stakeholders to improve and maintain water quality, and identify future project opportunities for projects that may be eligible for public and private grant support.
