The 2017 Seneca County budget may include $25,000 to help protect Cayuga Lake’s water. The Board of Supervisors’ Environmental Affairs Committee outlined the reasons why during Tuesday’s meeting. Committee chairman Steve Churchill, D-Seneca Falls, brought up the issue. He noted that Cayuga Lake, which provides the drinking water for Seneca Falls and several other communities, is seeing more blue-green algae, hydrilla, excessive nutrient loading that promotes weeds, failing septic systems and other water-quality issues.
