DEC Encourages New Yorkers to Complete Survey on St. Lawrence River Watershed to Help Guide Revitalization Plan for Region

Opportunity to Share Information to Help Protect Natural Resources

St. Lawrence River Watershed Project partners, including the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC), today released a survey seeking input from New Yorkers with knowledge of the watershed. The short online survey seeks information from the public about interactions with these land and water resources, and how a revitalization plan can address regional concerns. The survey will be open until January 15, 2020.

Survey results will help guide St. Lawrence River Watershed Project partners in the development of a revitalization plan. The watershed planning process gives communities in the area a chance to consider projects that could spark natural resource protection, economic investment, regional sustainability, and community revitalization.

The St. Lawrence Watershed lies at the border of New York State and Canada. The St. Lawrence River serves as the gateway between the North Atlantic and the Great Lakes. At its most downstream point in the United States, the Saint Lawrence drains an area of nearly 300,000 square miles. The area within New York State covered by the watershed revitalization plan includes a 5,600-square-mile region that spans the northern and western Adirondack mountains and the lake plains of the St. Lawrence Valley, including the villages and cities of Clayton, Alexandria Bay, Theresa, Potsdam, Canton, Tupper Lake, Paul Smith's, Ogdensburg, Malone, and Massena.

To learn more about the St. Lawrence River watershed, contact Emily Sheridan, Eastern Great Lakes Watershed coordinator, at 315-785-2382 / email: Emily.sheridan@dec.ny.gov.
