LGA's Investment at Work to Mitigate Stormwater Runoff in LG Village

November 10, 2023

LAKE GEORGE — It was the inaugural run on November 3, 2023, of the $37,000 stormwater vacuum donated to Lake George Village by the LGA. The device, used in conjunction with the Village's Vactor 2100, sucked up debris from the porous sidewalk pavement on a section of Schuyler Street. With the debris removed, precipitation can continue to filter through the pavement and into the ground rather than run downward to the Lake. A Lake George Mirror article, below, offers more details on this important step forward in Lake protection.
