Once again we talk about how these village officials are ripping off the citizens of Tupper Lake. Yes, our electric bills are less expensive than Niagra Mohawks bills but at least with Niagra Mohawk as a power company their are FAR LESS power outages. I myself will be willing to pay the extra money to have my power, especially in the winter. I don't know about you people but I don't feel like freezing my a*s off. I also hate to see the elderly people of Tupper Lake freezing in the winter because of no power. Tupper Lake has tried to get away with using cheap supplies and transformers that are sub-standard and probably pocketed the rest of the villages money. If I am so far from the truth, than explain ALL the power outages!

Why drink water you have booze? - Environmentalists monitoring water quality in area lakes

AUTHOR: Karlton - (U.S.A.)

Okay so you need water to mix with your booze. There has been a report here on RIP OFF Report about the ware quality of Tupper Lake. So here is what you can do about it!

Environmentalists monitoring water quality in area lakes

PAUL SMITHS The Residents' Committee to Protect the Adirondacks and the Adirondack Watersheds Institute at Paul Smith's College have teamed up to jointly administer the Adirondack Lake Assessment Program.

This is the eighth year of the program, which covers many lakes, including Blue Mountain Lake, Middle Saranac Lake, Cranberry Lake, Tupper Lake, Loon Lake, Silver Lake, Sacandaga Reservoir, Brandreth Lake, Eagle Lake, Sagamore Lake, Osgood Pond, 13th Lake, Rich Lake, Trout Lake, White Lake and Little Long Lake.

The Adirondack Lake Assessment Program provides groups and individuals with the tools to scientifically sample the water and track trends over time.

The program relies upon volunteer monitors to take monthly samples from June to August each year.

The goals are to:
Provide those concerned with a particular water body with information to measure its water quality.

Assemble a profile of the water quality of lakes and ponds across the Adirondack Park.
The minimum period of participation is five years, and it is encouraged that monitoring continue on an annual basis.

For 2005, 70 lakes and ponds have enrolled in the program, and there is space for more.
Lake associations, individuals, families or groups can easily monitor a lake or pond. Monitoring takes about 90 minutes, once a month. All volunteers are trained.

Each group or individual who monitors a lake or pond is provided with a monitoring kit and bottles and filters for the monitoring season, which is June through August.

Frozen samples are delivered for analysis to the AAI laboratory at Paul Smith's College. At the end of each season, an annual report is produced for each water body enrolled.

The cost for the program is $250 for one-time purchase of the monitoring equipment and $100 for a three-month season to cover laboratory analysis costs; the five-month season is $160.
A limited number of free monitoring kits are available to groups or individuals who commit to monitor a lake or pond for the next three years. These kits are available on a first-come, first-served basis.

Also, the Adirondack Watersheds Institute has been awarded funds to help pay for both testing equipment and monitoring costs of lakes and ponds in the Lake Champlain Watershed.

Anyone interested in monitoring a lake or pond for the 2005 season should call the Residents Committee to Protect the Adirondacks at 251-4257 or e-mail .
