A clean-up and restoration meeting for Lake Neatahwanta — once used for swimming, fishing, boat races, and other activities — will be held May 2 at 6 p.m. at the Fulton War Memorial.
The meeting will bring Oswego County residents and elected officials together with the goal of returning Lake Neatahwanta into the usefulness of its past.
The lake currently has a high contest of phosphorus and may contain blue-green algae.
The nearly 800 acre lake could contain bacteria and toxins, which can cause illness if consumed, and people and pets are encouraged to stay out of the water.
People and pets should avoid contact with water that is discolored or has scum on the surface.
