• Connect the Drops: Let’s stop litter from trashing our water

    Water quality in Onondaga Lake Onondaga Lake is the best it’s been in 100 years! Following the many improvements through gray and green infrastructure implementation, individual actions really do make a difference in water quality. Reducing street litter that finds its way into the lake and its tributaries is a major focus of our efforts in the coming years.
