Here is an interesting article for those of you who care about toilet testing.
Residential development accounts for only 5-6% of the land use in the watershed. Many homes on the southern end of the lake hug the base of steep cliffs.
Land use in the watershed is 48% agricultural, 40.2% forest, 5.4% private/residential and the rest vacant or commercial. Only a small portion (8%) of the watershed land area is in public ow\nership. Consequently, pollution prevention and watershed protection measures depend to a large extent on local land uses controls and pollution prevention strategies. Every citizen in the watershed plays a role in protecting Skaneateles Lake.
Over 95% of the farms in the watershed are doing their part to protect Skaneateles Lake by participating voluntarily in the Skaneateles Lake Watershed Agricultural Program.
