Bond Act Victory is a Vote for Clean Water

November 9, 2022

Following New York State voters’ passage of the Clean Water, Clean Air, and Green Jobs Environmental Bond Act of 2022, LGA President Eric Siy said:

“Yesterday’s overwhelming passage of the environmental Bond Act was an overwhelming vote for clean water. The Lake George Association encouraged our friends across the Lake George region to support the Act and we look forward to working with our elected officials and everyone who loves Lake George to ensure that The Queen of American Lakes benefits deservedly. With $650 million allocated for water quality projects, we can envision a multitude of ways in which these funds can address our Lake’s greatest water quality threats, including harmful algal blooms, stormwater pollution, and aging and failing septic systems. Lake George is a priceless resource for all New Yorkers, and the investment of Bond Act dollars can help ensure its sustained protection.”
