Wastewater

Wastewater flows into Lake George from outdated septic systems and sewage treatment plants during heavy rains. It threatens our water clarity with nutrient loading, encourages invasive species, and results in toxic algae blooms. We're working hard to keep wastewater out of Lake George. You can too. Make sure your septic system isn't contributing to the problem. Have questions? Contact your Waterkeeper!
