to preserve the health, beauty and welfare of Otisco Lake not only today, but for future
In partnership with the Onondaga County Health Department, Onondaga County Water
Authority (OCWA), and Cornell Cooperative Extension we work to maintain the integrity of
Otisco Lake and its watershed. We continue to fight the battle against Eurasian milfoil weed
and other invasive species and have plans to utilize various options, along with providing
educational literature, to help control and maintain these species in an effort to prevent
further spreading and to protect our lake.
Otisco Lake is one of Onondaga County’s main drinking water sources. We feel it is vital to
everyone that we work together to safeguard this precious resource. We offer educational
and awareness opportunities to help the community know how they can help. We are very
involved in preserving and protecting our lake, its watershed, the health of our communities
and our environment.
This website has been created by the OLPA to provide updates on the activities, events and
information that affect Otisco Lake.
Please feel free to attend our monthly meetings which are held on the first Wednesday of
the month at the Amber Inn, Marietta 6:30 pm. We look forward to seeing you.
