FACT SHEET Sewer Separation Project at CSO Area 061 Project Description: The CSO 061 Area includes 1.6 acres within a residential neighborhood in the south side of the City of Syracuse. During large rain events, the combined sewage from the Crehange Street combined sewer can overflow to an existing 12-inch outfall to Onondaga Creek (CSO-061). The proposed design includes construction of a new sanitary sewer along Crehange Street, connecting to the existing combined sewer on Kirk Park Drive. The combined sewer along Crehange Street will be repurposed for storm water only, which will convey tributary stormwater from the Crehange Street properties, as well as two catch basins that are tributary to the Hatch Street combined sewer. The CSO-061 outfall will be disconnected from the combined sewer and will be repurposed and utilized for stormwater discharge only. The Hatch Street combined sewer and the Kirk Park Drive combined sewer will have reduced stormwater contributions.

Green Components: The County evaluated the use of Green Infrastructure for mitigating overflows at CSO-061. It was concluded that complete separation would be more effective than GI due to the short conveyance distance, proximity to Onondaga Creek and the desire to implement a total closure of CSO-061. Project Update: It is anticipated that construction on the project will begin by fall of 2016.

GREEN PROJECTS UPDATE


Green Projects Update Progress on several Save the Rain projects continued during the third quarter of 2016. The West Colvin Street infiltration trench project was completed during the third quarter of 2016 utilizing the County’s Green Structures Term Construction Contractor, DE Tarolli, Inc. The project included an infiltration trench spanning one block between Columbia Avenue and Wellesley Avenue to manage runoff within the CSO 052 area. This project captures approximately 230,000 gallons of stormwater runoff annually. The project was completed in advance of the City of Syracuse’s road reconstruction efforts and the public was kept apprised of schedule via the County’s Save the Rain website and flyers. Construction of the Green Separation CSO 052 at South & Mitchell Avenues project began during the third quarter. The project includes a new stormwater management facility on the City of Syracuse owned property between South Avenue, Mitchell Avenue, and Armstrong Place (formerly the location of Garzone’s Restaurant). This facility is being constructed to manage stormwater ponding on-site as well as capturing additional stormwater from Cornell and South avenues. Work on the stormwater management facility began in early August. The separate storm sewer and infiltration facility on Mitchell Avenue was completed during the quarter and includes stormwater capture between South Avenue and Armstrong Place. The proposed project will provide the dual benefit of managing stormwater runoff in CSO 052 and reducing localized flooding episodes in the neighborhood. Prior to construction, the County’s Save the Rain team held the third public information meeting on the project to discuss the construction progress with residents and answer any questions. The County progressed the design of the Lynch Avenue infiltration trench project that will be constructed in 2016 as a change order to the Green Separation in CSO 052 project. The project includes an infiltration trench spanning the block between Fletcher Avenue and Russell Place to manage runoff from within the CSO 052 area. The total stormwater capture for the Lynch Avenue project is nearly 400,000 gallons annually. During the public information meeting for the Green Separation in CSO 052 project, the Save the Rain team notified the public of the upcoming project, and further construction updates will be provided as they become available, through flyering and the Save the Rain website. Construction also began on the State Street Green Corridor project during the third quarter, utilizing the County’s Green Structures Term Contractors (DE Tarolli, Inc. and J&J Landscaping, LLC). The project is funded in part by a Water Quality Improvement Project grant from the NYSDEC and consists of several green infrastructure practices along State Street in three different segments: Taylor Street to Adams Street, Fayette Street to Water Street, and James Street to Salina Street. Work first began between Taylor Street and Adams Street moving northward to the other work areas as work progressed through the quarter. The project is on track for completion in 2016 and the County is continuing their public outreach efforts with localized flyer distributions and project updates to adjacent businesses and residents.


The design of CSO 060/077 Green Street candidate projects was advanced during the third quarter to the 90% phase. These candidates include projects on McKinley Avenue, East Colvin Street, Roney Lane, Comstock Avenue, Lancaster Avenue, and Ackerman Avenue. The projects on Lancaster Avenue and McKinley Avenue are expected to proceed to construction during the fourth quarter of 2016. The projects on Ackerman Avenue, Comstock Avenue, East Colvin Street, and Roney Lane will proceed to final detailed design, public outreach and construction in 2017 and 2018. The Save the Rain team has been coordinating the construction schedule with the Southeast University Neighborhood Association and other local community groups for these projects. Additional public outreach will continue as these projects advance to construction. Through the efforts of the Green Planning Committee (GPC), progress advancing pubic projects continued through the third quarter. Design of the CSO 067 candidates (McKinley Park, Vacant Lot at 621 West Newell Street, and Green Street at Vale and Newell streets) proceeded to the 50% design phase in the third quarter. The GPC is also finalizing the development of additional project candidates in CSO 052, and began the discussion for project candidate development in the Harbor Brook CSOs (005, 006, 006A, 009, 010, 011, 014, 015, 017, 078) for implementation by 2018. Discussions between the GPC, County, and City on a green infrastructure approach for CSO 029 continued during the third quarter, with the expectation of the development of a plan of action during the fourth quarter of 2016.

Project Description: The McKinley Park Project is one of many projects being accomplished through the collaborative efforts of Onondaga County and the City of Syracuse. As a neighborhood park, McKinley Park has served the recreational needs of the community since 1920. The primary goal of the project is to reduce the volume of stormwater that flows into the combined sewer system along West Newell Street, West Calthrop Avenue, and West Pleasant Avenue – all within the CSO 067 area. The County and the City have partnered to help reduce this runoff through the installation of various green infrastructure technologies, including bioretention and porous pavement with an underground infiltration system in the parking area. This infrastructure will capture runoff from the park and surrounding areas, totaling 90,000 square feet of drainage area. Stormwater will slowly evaporate and/or infiltrate underground, eliminating excess drainage to the sewer system and improving the overall stormwater management and drainage in this area. A secondary goal of this project is to enhance McKinley Park by increasing green space and improving the basketball court. Some of the existing pavement, which was once used as a tennis court will be completely removed and replaced with open green space. Additionally, the current half-court basketball facility will be removed and replaced with a full court porous pavement basketball court in partnership with the Jim and Julie Boeheim Foundation’s Courts4Kids Program. This will be the fifth porous pavement basketball court project constructed in partnership with the Foundation since 2011.

Project Description: The Green Separation of CSO 052 Project will be accomplished through the collaborative efforts of Onondaga County and the City of Syracuse. Historically, the area around the proposed detention basin has been prone to severe flooding throughout the year. This is due, in part, to years of illegal dumping that impacted the natural surface and groundwater flow patterns. The County and the City have partnered to help limit this problem through the installation of a slow-release stormwater detention basin and infiltration. Additionally, the County is undertaking a storm sewer separation project on Mitchell Avenue to separate stormwater from the existing combined sewer system. The primary goal of the project is to reduce the volume of stormwater that flows into the combined sewer system along South, Cornell, and Mitchell Avenues, all within CSO 052. The secondary goal is to reduce the level of flooding experienced in this area. The new detention/slow release facility will be constructed on property owned by the City of Syracuse and will capture runoff from South and Cornell Avenues as well as from the City’s property, totaling 890,400 square feet of drainage area. The facility will have the capacity to store 1,155,700 gallons of stormwater during rain events. Stormwater will be slowly released to the Armstrong Place combined sewer system over time. It is expected that the detention/slow release facility will improve the stormwater management and drainage in this area and lessen the effects of flooding onto residential properties that adjoin the City-owned property. Additionally, runoff from 140,700 square feet of drainage area along Mitchell Avenue will be collected in a new storm sewer system and directed to an underground stormwater infiltration basin with a runoff reduction volume of approximately 1,241,900 gallons per year. Construction of the project began in August 2016 and the Mitchell Ave. storm sewer system was complete in September. When the project is fully complete in 2017, it will capture a combined total of approximately 3,781,200 gallons of runoff per year.

Project Description: The Newell Street Green Street Project demonstrates the continued partnership between Onondaga County and the City of Syracuse through the Save the Rain Program. The project concept was put forth by the Green Project Committee with stakeholder input from county, city, and citizen representatives. This project involves the construction of an underground infiltration trench which will occupy the south side of Newell Street between the Onondaga Creek Bridge and Vale Street. The infiltration trench will manage runoff from an estimated 5,150 square feet of drainage area from Newell Street in the maximum amount of storage space possible without disrupting the existing underground utilities in this area. Being completely underground, the infiltration trench system will provide high capture efficiency without requiring an obtrusive footprint at the surface.

Onondaga Lake Phosphorus (2016 to-date) The AMP tracks the summer average total phosphorus (TP) concentration in the lake’s upper waters. New York State has promulgated a narrative standard for phosphorus in water: “None in amounts that will result in growths of algae, weeds and slimes that will impair the waters for their best usages” (NYSCRR §703.2). For ponded waters the narrative standard is interpreted using a guidance value of 20 μg/L calculated as the average total phosphorus concentration in the lake’s upper waters between June 1 and September 30. This number was developed from statistical analysis of surveys of lake users conducted throughout New York State as to their perception of the suitability of specific waterbodies for swimming and other forms of contact recreation (Kishbaugh, 1994). Figure 1 presents the 2016 summer (June - September) TP concentrations in the upper waters of the lake to-date which is close to the guidance value of 20µg/L. As of September 30, 2016, 58 waterbodies with blooms were posted by the NYSDEC on their Harmful Algal Blooms notifications webpage in several locations in the state. The total maximum daily load TMDL target is a numeric endpoint that ensures protection of the designated best uses of a water body. The phosphorus TMDL was approved by USEPA on June 29, 2012. The ultimate measure of the success of the Onondaga Lake Phosphorus TMDL is the extent to which the in-lake total phosphorus criteria and beneficial uses are achieved.


Figure 1

Summer Average TP concentration in the upper waters (0-3 meters) of Onondaga Lake.

Nitrogen to Phosphorus Ratio The relative concentration of nutrients is an important determinant of the composition of the phytoplankton community. The effects of nutrient concentrations on phytoplankton speciation can have water quality management implications, particularly with respect to avoiding proliferation of cyanobacteria (blue-green algae). Cyanobacteria can cause noxious and potentially toxic conditions when present in high concentrations. As of September 30, 2016, 58 waterbodies with blooms in several locations in the state were posted by the NYSDEC on their Harmful Algal Blooms notifications webpage. The maintenance of high nitrogen to phosphorus ratios (N:P) in the upper productive layers of Onondaga Lake has been a long-term management strategy to discourage such noxious conditions. Data from a wide range of temperate lakes suggests that a total N to total P ratio (TN:TP) of 29:1 (by mass) differentiates between lakes with cyanobacteria dominance and lakes without such dominance. The time series of the summer average (June 1–September 30) TN:TP ratio for the upper waters is presented for the 1998–2015 period (Figure 2). Total nitrogen (TN) was calculated as the sum of Total Kjeldahl N (TKN; organic nitrogen plus ammonia), nitrite, and nitrate. The TN:TP ratio has remained above the literature N:P threshold for cyanobacteria dominance for the entire 1998 to 2015 period. The higher values from 2007 to 2015 reflect the effects of systematic decreases in total phosphorus loading from Metro, with mostly unchanging TN concentrations. The common occurrence of dense populations of filamentous cyanobacteria in summer from the late 1980s to early 2000s was likely due to a combination of much lower N:P ratios and higher levels of P. Large cyanobacteria are better competitors when P levels are high both because they can get large enough to be inedible to grazers like


Daphnia, and because they can regulate their buoyancy and better compete for light that can be limiting at high nutrient concentrations. Cyanobacteria have not been an important component of the algal community in recent years. 250

BIOLOGICAL MONITORING PROGRAM (July - September 2016) Sampling Summary (July)  Completed annual nesting.  Completed second larval fish sampling. Sampling Summary (August)  Completed first juvenile seine event. Sampling Summary (September)  Completed annual electrofishing event.  Completed second juvenile seine event.

Tributary Macroinvertebrates Tributary macroinvertebrates have been monitored every two years by Onondaga County from 2000 through 2010, which created a robust baseline dataset against which to evaluate response to implementation of point source (combined sewer overflows, or CSOs) and non-point source control measures within the tributary subwatersheds. The point source control measures were largely completed in 2013 when the Lower Harbor Brook and Clinton CSO storage facilities were completed. Nonpoint source control measures have been implemented gradually; municipal stormwater improvement projects and agricultural best management practices have been completed throughout the Onondaga Lake watershed. The 2015 tributary macroinvertebrate program was scheduled as an initial assessment of potential impact of the point source controls completed in 2013; this schedule


allowed approximately 18 months for the benthic community to equilibrate to the reduction in organic loading from the CSO remedial measures. As part of the AMP, the final tributary macroinvertebrate program is planned in 2017. A total of ten sampling sites are located along the three tributaries (Onondaga Creek, Harbor Brook and Ley Creek) affected by CSOs. Data from each site were analyzed by calculating various metrics designed to indicate the health of the macroinvertebrate community. These metrics were then scored on a common scale to come up with a Biological Assessment Profile (BAP), an index of overall level of impact to the macroinvertebrate community. Sites on Onondaga Creek showed various levels of change with regard to level of impact compared to 2010. The Webster Road and Spencer Street sites showed notable improvement from 2010, the Dorwin Avenue site was essentially unchanged, and the Tully Farms Road site showed a considerable decline in condition from 2010 (Figure 3). Ley Creek tends to show the greatest degree of overall impact of the three Onondaga Lake tributaries monitored for macroinvertebrates. From 2000 through 2010, sites in Ley Creek were consistently assessed as severely impacted or moderately impacted based on their BAP (Figure 4). In 2015, both the Townline Road and the Park Street sites were again assessed as severely impacted, with the 7th North Street site assessed as moderately impacted. The condition of both monitoring sites on Harbor Brook improved from 2010 to 2015, with the upstream site, Velasko Road, showing the greater improvement (Figure 5). The Velasko Road site in Harbor Brook had consistently been assessed as moderately impacted from 2000 through 2010, but the BAP score improved considerably in 2015, resulting in an assessment of slightly impacted. The Hiawatha Boulevard site was assessed as severely impacted from 2002 through 2010. The BAP score for this site improved slightly in 2015, but still resulted in an assessment of severely impacted. All of the sampled sites demonstrated some level of impact. Impairment was greatest in Ley Creek, followed by the Hiawatha Boulevard site in Harbor Brook. Analyses indicate that the primary causes of impairment to the macroinvertebrate community of Ley Creek were related to excessive organic loading, primarily from sewage or animal wastes, along with a potential industrial contribution. Municipal/industrial influences were indicated as the primary source of impairment to Harbor Brook, and toxic substances and municipal/industrial influences were indicated as the greatest contributors to impairment of the benthic community in Onondaga Creek.

Rainy-Day Sidewalk Messages Remind Pedestrians About Litter's Impact on Waterways

By SCOTT WILLIS & SOPHIA MORRIS • JUL 6, 2016 You may not be able to see it on a sunny day, but when it rains you may find yourself looking at a new take on sidewalk art. The lack of rain means Onondaga County Department of Water Environment Protection Commissioner Tom Rhoads had to innovate. "Right now we're in dry weather, but what we're going to do is activate the art. Let's see what happens," Rhoads said as water was poured on the sidewalk. "So, it says, 'Keep litter out of the forecast. Connect the drops. Save the rain.'” Rhoads was demonstrating how their new campaign works to reduce litter in our community. “What it does is it repels the water so it's completely invisible in dry weather," Rhoads said. "But when it rains, you'll be able to see these images.” Those images are reminders to the community about putting litter in the trash can so it doesn’t end up in bodies of water.

http://waer.org/post/rainy-day-sidewalk-messages-remind-pedestrians-about-litters-impact-waterways


“Even though you see it on a roadside, or you might see it in a park or schoolyard, what's happening is when it rains, that's actually going to get flushed into a storm water system," Rhoads said. "That litter, if not captured with some sort of technology or street sweeping, will eventually make its way to a water body.” He says Save the Rain Program works closely with the Department of Water Environment Protection to manage storm water runoff that helps protect Onondaga Lake and its tributaries. “One of the responsibilities that we have, now that we've done so much to clean up the lake from certain forms of contamination, we also need to take this great body of water and make sure it continues its remarkable recovery. Litter really degrades any water body." Rhoads says only the next rain storm will reveal the remaining locations of the project’s unique street art, but for now it can be seen around the Civic Center and Everson Museum.

Businesses seeing economic impact of Lakeview Amphitheater

July 15, 2016 SYRACUSE, N.Y. (WSYR-TV) Not even half way through the inaugural concert season and area businesses are already seeing the impact of the Lakeview Amphitheater. Places as far as Downtown Syracuse are reporting increases in business on those nights. Ale ‘n’ Angus Pub, on Harrison Street in Syracuse, is about 8 miles from the Amphitheater. The restaurant, which is strong on event nights at the War Memorial and Civic Center in the Fall, Winter and Spring, usually sees things quiet down in the summers. "They came out with an Amphitheater concert like The Dave Matthews Band, sellout crowd; I just treated it as another day without an event because it’s not across the street. We were wrong." Matt Beach, Owner and General Manager of Ale ‘n’ Angus tells NewsChannel 9. Many people are parking for free in the OnCenter parking lot and taking the short walk to the Centro Transfer Station downtown to catch dedicated Amphitheater shuttles on the night of concerts.

http://www.localsyr.com/news/local-news/businesses-seeing-economic-impact-of-lakeview-amphitheater


Ale ‘n’ Angus happens to sit right on the way between the parking lot and Transfer Station. Beach says, "We benefit before, maybe Armory Square, which is again 8 miles from the Amphitheater benefits on the way back." Onondaga County Legislature Chair Ryan McMahon says it benefits everyone in the County. "We run County government on sales tax, that sales tax primes the pump for us to pave roads, keep up parks, and pay for our Sheriff's Department. The events are creating more economic activity than what we would have had and the tourism that's happened." McMahon says. "Things have been going great. It’s hard to believe standing here today an amphitheater 8 miles away would benefit my business but it is.” Beach says. Starting with Thursday’s Zac Brown Band concert the Lakeview Amphitheater still has 10 more shows this season.

July 15, 2016 WSYR-TV More than 70 middle school students have spent a week full of exploring the Onondaga Lake watershed. Now, in its 11th year, the Honeywell summer science week— organized by the M.O.S.T— gives students a chance to learn about their local waterways, beginning from Onondaga Creek‟s headwaters in Tully. “They start to realize that they're doing this work themselves, which is the whole point of the program to give the kids ownership. Then they start to say „look at my data‟, then they go home to their parents and say „wow, look what I learned.‟ Then they'll start talking to their colleagues and their friends saying I learned this and I did it myself,” said Peter Plumley, the Chief Program Officer at the M.O.S.T.

Onondaga Lake Fest: High expectations seemingly met lake's healthy comeback

It's been nearly 20 years since Lake Onondaga hosted the Onondaga Cup, and Central New York, bolstered by the NY state government and over $700 Million in clean up efforts has realized the potential the lake can offer, as noted Saturday during the reopening of the Onondaga Cup and Lake Fest. Governor Andrew Cuomo, along with Onondaga County Executive Joanie Mahoney and Syracuse Media Group President Tim Kennedy kicked off the opening ceremony with words of praise and hope for the lake's continued success and community acceptance of it's health. "The Lake's coming back. The county has done great work, the state has done great work, but Mother Nature actually has done the best work," Cuomo said.

Onondaga Lake Fest: People come for the giant duck, see the lake's potential

Syracuse, N.Y. -- Clumps of people milled in front of a 60-foot tall rubber duck, holding out their smart phones and craning their necks. It was a selfie factory all afternoon. The duck was what drew people to the Onondaga Cup and Lakefest today, but they stayed to see the boat races and even a woman dressed as a mermaid. She swam in the lake, then held court with children for pictures after being carried to shore by an assistant. The event, which is free, is built around boat races that go throughout the day. People who stood on the shore were puzzled by how the races worked, but lined up to watch, anyway. The path along the lake, which stretches for a mile, is lined with vendors that will be there into the evening. There is also a kid's area with face painting and bouncy houses at Willow Bay. The event is sponsored by SMG, the parent company of Syracuse.com, and the Syracuse Chargers rowing club.

Peter and Diane Peters stood in front of the duck, taking picture after picture. They were making their son's Christmas present. Now in his 30s, their son has always loved ducks. So every year they send him something with a duck. This year, it will be them standing next to the world's biggest duck. The couple remembered more than two decades ago, when the regatta was the centerpiece of summer at the lake. The park, Peter Peters said, was thick with people. Everyone, he said, brought their own keg. He looked at across the thinner, tamer crowd. "This is better than it's been in a long time," he said. Mandy Rowe brought her children, Cameron, 6, and Francis, 3, to see the duck. The children collect ducks. They have more than 100 in every shape and size. But none as big as the giant duck, dubbed "Cusey" for the Onondaga Lake event. Cameron thought the duck was bigger, even, than her grandmother's house. And she's likely right. Cusey the duck is as tall as a six-story building. It took more than 3 hours to inflate and had to ride in its own tractor-trailer truck. As impressed as Cameron and her brother were by the duck, it's possibly "Tory the Mermaid" was a close second. The professional mermaid swimmer, based in Fairport, swam up and down the edge of Onondaga Lake. Until last year, the lake had been among the most polluted in the nation. It's where several companies dumped their industrial waste. A lawsuit by Sam Sage and his Atlantic States Legal Foundation forced the lake's cleanup, at a cost of more than $700 million. While some haven't been satisfied with the cleanup, last year scientists declared the lake fit to swim in. It isn't yet open for public swimming, but Tory the Mermaid glided through the water, flipping her sequined tail. She stopped in the shallow parts so people on the shore could snap pictures. When she was done swimming, she was carried to a chair where she smiled for pictures with wide-eyed children, flicking her tail from time to time. Mimi George and Liz Anderson often come to the park to walk. But today they, too, came for the duck. Anderson adores rubber ducks and filled her iPad with pictures of herself, her friend, and the giant rubber duck. Both women then stayed to watch the races. They joined a group of people standing on the grass, all looking out at the lake. Crew racing boats glided through the water. Some of the boats were manned by experienced rowers. Others were corporate teams that struggled to stay in the lane lines. But it didn't seem to matter to the spectators. "How nice it is they are bringing the lake back," George said. The Lakefest continues through 9:30 this evening.

Cuomo canoes Onondaga Lake in first event for Onondaga Lake Fest

Syracuse, N.Y. -- Gov. Andrew Cuomo kicked off the first race at the Onondaga Cup & Lakefest. And he won by more than a giant duck bill. With a 60-foot inflatable duck looking on, Cuomo and his team raced SMG President Tim Kennedy and his team. Cuomo's team took off fast in the eight-person canoe. The governor joked he had some ringers, but his team included Matt Driscoll, the former Syracuse mayor and current state DOT commissioner. Kennedy's team included Onondaga County Executive Joanie Mahoney, who arrived at the event with Cuomo. The politicians came to the lake following a tour of the Syracuse Nationals car show at the fairgrounds. Kennedy's team also included several other Central New York figures: Jim Bright, president at Dunk & Bright Furniture Co., Jim Fox, CEO of O'Brien & Gere, Jason Smoral, general manager of the Syracuse Chiefs, Al Stirpe, state Assemblyman, and Juli Boeheim.

http://www.syracuse.com/news/index.ssf/2016/07/cuomo_canoes_onondaga_lake_in_first_event_for_ono ndaga_lake_fest.html


Both teams donated $1,000 to the Jim and Juli Boeheim Foundation. Following the race, Cuomo said the revival of the regatta at Onondaga Lake, which stopped two decades ago, is symbolic of the lake and region's rebound. "It's a story of renewal and rebirth," Cuomo said. "The lake is back. It's coming back faster than anyone expected." Onondaga Lake, once among the most polluted lakes in the nation, has been undergoing environmental mediation for several years. Last year, scientists declared it safe enough to swim in. (Cuomo's press secretary John Kelly thought it was clean enough today. He ran through the water barefoot to hop on a boat that had already pulled away from shore). Cuomo also joked that his team was fueled to row faster than Kennedy's team because someone was reading aloud all of the "nasty editorials" penned about him by the The Post-Standard and Syracuse.com. The Lakefest is sponsored by Syracuse.com's parent company, SMG, and The Syracuse Chargers rowing club. "For a chance to get back at the newspaper, I can't tell you the joy I felt," Cuomo said, smiling. Mahoney also spoke about the regatta as a sign of the lake's rebirth. And she thanked Cuomo for his support in the county's efforts to clean the lake and rebuild the area around it, including the Lakeview Amphitheater and the renovations at the Fairgrounds. Kennedy said that when the regatta was first being discussed, it fit seamlessly within his vision of the media company's mission: to make the community a better place. "This was a no brainer," Kennedy said. He and Cuomo promised to face off again next year. For that, Cuomo offered some advice: "Go Straight."

Swimming with a mermaid at the Onondaga Cup and Lake Fest

Tory the Mermaid was a splash at the Onondaga Cup and Lake Fest Saturday at Onondaga Lake. The professional swimmer made a symbolic gesture swimming along the shore to indicate that cleanup efforts for the once toxic lake was successful, and safe to swim in. Besides Tory the Mermaid, 'Cusey,' the six-story tall inflatable duck commanded the event from the water, a flyboard demonstration glued eyes to the water for half an hour, and several heats of crew teams raced for the Onondaga Cup through the evening.

Lakeview Amphitheater good for downtown Syracuse restaurant owner

To the Editor: When construction began on the Lakeview Amphitheater -- the "Amp" as we all know it by -- I was a little discouraged thinking that concerts and business were going to be taken away from downtown Syracuse. Since the Amp has been up and running, it has been a pleasant and welcome surprise that we are getting some nice new summertime business from something that is six miles away. Traffic has been an issue at the Amp and County Executive Joanie Mahoney and her staff implemented free parking at the Oncenter and nominal fee shuttle bus ride every 15 minutes from the Centro Hub to help alleviate some of the congestion. Our location on Harrison Street is right in the middle of the Oncenter and Centro Hub. Folks stop in for dinner and drinks before the concerts and I'm sure they might visit Armory Square or other locations downtown on their way home. Customers are even calling to make reservations and to make sure that we are open for that night's show. With summer business in the city being our lowest volume of the year, it sure helps our staff members hours and our bottom line. Again thanks to Mahoney and her staff for looking out for all of us businesses downtown.

F.O.C.U.S. on the future Nonprofit seeks opinions on what should be done with Onondaga Lake

By Sarah Hall, Editor August 4, 2016

A local nonprofit wants to know what you see for the future of Onondaga Lake. F.O.C.U.S. Greater Syracuse, a civic group that has been conducting research on the lake and the surrounding community for nearly 20 years, is developing a survey to determine how Onondaga County residents would like to see the lake used in the future. According to F.O.C.U.S. communications director Dee Klees, the survey‟s results will be used to help create a report with recommendations on use of the lake that will ultimately be submitted to County Executive Joanie Mahoney. F.O.C.U.S. kicked off its research with a “snapshot survey” Saturday, July 16, at the Onondaga Cup and Lakefest event, asking attendees what they‟d like to see at the lake. “The snapshot survey is a way to build awareness and interest in participating in the full survey that will inform a report on how the people of Central New York want to see the waters of Onondaga Lake used in the future,” Klees said. “It‟s also a way to gather ideas that may not have been considered in preparation for that survey.”The snapshot survey revealed the lake‟s importance to the community. “We learned that the public has a huge desire to be on or near the lake,” said F.O.C.U.S. Executive Director Charlotte “Chuckie” Holstein. “The many family groups that visited the F.O.C.U.S. booth expressed how happy they felt to be able to be close up to the water. And, as one person said to me, „It doesn‟t smell anymore.‟ We learned that we need to learn even more in order to make an honest and full report to the community and community leaders.” Klees said many of those who responded to the snapshot survey expressed an interest in swimming in the lake. Others had more imaginative ideas. “Children came up with some of the most creative ideas,” she said. “One wants a parade of floats on the water like the Macy‟s Christmas parade. Another would like to see penguins in the lake. Others expressed a desire for events on the lake.”

http://www.eaglenewsonline.com/news/2016/08/04/f-o-c-u-s-on-the-future


From the snapshot survey, F.O.C.U.S. will develop a more in-depth set of questions that will be made available to the community some time this fall. “The survey will include photos and ideas gathered at the Onondaga Cup event, along with the analyzed data from key stakeholder interviews, surveys, focus groups and an advisory group,” Klees said. Anyone interested in taking the survey can learn more and register at the website onondagalakesurvey.org to be notified when the online survey goes live. That link also goes to the focussyracuse.org site where you can learn more about F.O.C.U.S. While no deadline is available yet, Klees said participants will likely have “months [rather] than days” to complete the survey. Klees and Holstein emphasized that this survey is a local effort, developed by people who understand the troubled history of the lake as well as its importance to the Central New York community. “[This is] local research by local citizens for local consumption,” said Holstein.

Ships ahoy!

By Ashley M. Casey August 10, 2016

While most scouting activities take place on dry land — whether it’s camping, selling snacks or doing community service — Sea Scouts take to the waves for adventure. This past weekend, five Sea Scouting ships gathered at Onondaga Lake for the third annual Erie Canal Flotilla Sea Scout Regatta. An offshoot of Boy Scouts of America, Sea Scouting is open to both boys and girls between the ages of 14 and 20. While the program teaches nautical skills and boating safety, there is also an emphasis on leadership, citizenship and teamwork. “The main objective is to promote leadership, to get these young people thinking about taking charge,” said Rob Stone, skipper of Sea Scout Ship 876, which calls the Onondaga Yacht Club home. “[Sea] Scouting is different from other types of organizations … most of the leadership comes from the Scouts themselves.” Sea Scouts can work to achieve the highest rank of Quartermaster, which Stone said is more difficult to reach than the Boy Scouts’ Eagle Scout rank. “Whereas there’s a couple thousand Eagles every year, last year there were [37] Quartermasters in the United States,” Stone said. In addition to Ship 876, Upstate New York is home to a few other units; among them are Ship 23 in Skaneateles, Ship 25 in Ithaca and Ship 1 in Clayton. A ship from northern Pennsylvania joined the local units at Onondaga Lake for the 2016 regatta.

http://www.eaglenewsonline.com/news/2016/08/10/ships-ahoy


“The majority of Sea Scout units will have a couple of larger boats. A lot of these kids, they’ve never done the small vessels,” Stone said. The yearly regatta includes two or three races throughout the day. Ships are given a handicap based on the design and speed. The boats follow a triangular course and ships are scored on their performance. “We’ll average those out at the end and declare a winner,” Stone said. The regatta isn’t just about sailing. The three-day event also includes knot-tying contests, chances to earn merit badges and a galley cook-off. “It’s more of a fun thing than a real serious sailboat race,” Stone said. “It’s not just about the sailing — it’s all about the camaraderie of the kids.” Ship 876 is looking for new members, especially girls. Currently, only four of the 17 Sea Scouts registered are female. “When my son joined, it was all girls and only two boys,” Stone said. “We want more girls in it because we’re a bit imbalanced at the moment.”

County Executive: Lakeview Amphitheater's First Season a Success

By Alexa Green August 18, 2016

SYRACUSE, N.Y. -- It began on a high note with Ringo Starr and his All Star Band kicking off the first full season at the Lakeview Amphitheater. Along the way, mega-acts like Zac Brown Band and Dave Matthews Band have taken the stage. "It's been so successful," said Onondaga County Executive Joanie Mahoney. "The lineup is spectacular, ticket sales have been very strong, the logistics have been smooth, people have been very patient with us." But there have been some bumps. Dust in the parking lot, heavy traffic and a lack of bathrooms were issues the county executive says have since been addressed. One thing that can't be controlled, though, is the weather. When skies opened up last week at the Snoop Dogg concert, Mahoney says those in lawn seats were told to move to under the pavilion -- which got mixed reviews from concertgoers. "I do understand if you spent a lot of money on your ticket, and all of a sudden, you were a lot more crowded than you intended," she said, "but the alternative would have been a canceled show." Mahoney adds that, in the future, as long as there's not any lightning, the show will go on. She encouraged concertgoers to prepare for any type of weather ahead of time.

Fishin' and the NY State Fair: Two Onondaga Lake events lead to fairgrounds

Spectators off and on the grounds of the New York State Fair got a glimpse today of why a recovering Onondaga Lake is considered a great fishing spot by many. I Love NY sponsored a mini, 3-hour tournament on Onondaga Lake this morning, pitting 10 Bassmaster Elite Series bass fishing pros against 10 bass anglers from across Central New York. The anglers fished from 6:30 to 9:30 a.m. The noon weighceremony was held at the state Fairgrounds. Meanwhile, the state Department of Environmental Conservation held an event of its own on a pier at Onondaga Lake Park in Liverpool near the Salt Museum this morning. The DEC's "free fishing experience," held from 8 to 10 a.m., provided free fishing instruction for young and old alike, in addition to handing out poles and bait for those attending to try out their luck.

http://www.newyorkupstate.com/nysfair/2016/09/fishin_and_the_ny_state_fair_two_onondaga_lake_events_lead_to_fairgrounds.html


Those who attended the DEC event were also provided free NYS Fair tickets. Among those wetting their lines off the Onondaga Lake park pier was DEC Commissioner Basil Seggos, with his daughter, Lilly, 5. The mini-tournament on Onondaga ended with Elite Series pro, Fletcher Shyock, of New Philadelphia, Ohio, emerging as the top angler of the day. He turned in three fish for a total weight of 12.12 pound. His biggest fish, which was the biggest one of the day, was a hefty, 5.97 pound largemouth bass. He said he caught all the fish on a Gary Yamamoto "Flappin' Hog" plastic creature bait that resembled a crayfish. "I've never fished this lake before and it was great. I caught more than 20 bass in no time," he said. Brian Eisch, of Lacona, took the honors as the top angler from the N.Y. Bass Chapter Federation group. His three fish weighed 11.99 pounds. His biggest fish was a 5.15 pound largemouth bass. "I caught all of them on a jig with a Tricky Phish trailer," he said. All of the anglers, including emcee Mike Cusano, of Clay, touted Onondaga Lake and other waterways across New York State as among the best bass fishing waters in the state. Fairgoers are encouraged to stop by the I LOVE NY and DEC Pavilions at the fairgrounds to enter a random drawing to win a lifetime pass to the Great New York State Fair. Five winners were announced during the bass fishing tournament weigh-in. The fish that were weighed from Onondaga Lake were all kept alive by the anglers in aerated live wells on their boats. Following the weigh-in, all the fish were put into a water tanker and left the fairgrounds to be put back into Onondaga Lake. The anglers stuck around until about 3 p.m., giving fairgoers a chance to check out their boats, talk to them about fishing -- and in some case, get photos of them and autographs.

Onondaga Lake Conservation Corps replants Lakeview Amphitheater shoreline

GEDDES, N.Y. -- Onondaga Lake Conservation Corps volunteers joined together to replant the Lakeview Amphitheater shoreline, and take in some bird watching on Saturday morning. Honeywell, The Montezuma Audubon Center, and Habitat experts from Parsons led the effort to plant native species including, Blue Flag Iris, Prairie Cordgrass, Burr Reed, Sedges, Soft Rush, Spike Rush, and Cardinal Flower. Honeywell in connection with the greater lake clean up is leading the effort eventually improving 87 acres of wetlands with approximately 1.1 million trees, plants, and shrubs. Currently as the new habitat develops it is off limits from land to the general public and only accessible by boat or special events.

Volunteers Revitalize Onondaga Lake Shoreline

By Gabrielle Lucivero September 24, 2016

GEDDES, N.Y. -- It's early Saturday morning on the shores of Onondaga Lake and dozens of volunteers learning how they can contribute to the lake clean up. "We're trying to promote the stewards of tomorrow and to really bring the lake back to the community and the community back to the lake,” said Natalia Cagide Elmer, Onondaga Lake Conservation Corps volunteer. "Anybody can do it, you don't have to have a science background, you just have to have some civic mindedness,” said another volunteer, Sue Potrikus. Volunteers planted a variety of species in an effort to continue to revitalize the wetlands along the shoreline of the lake. "The value of all the work that we're doing and all these plants that we're installing in the lake are truly fundamental in the water quality of the lake itself,” said Cagide Elmer. Saturday's event was also a chance to educate locals about the wildlife benefiting from the lake clean up. "It's going to bring in birds, it's going to bring in fish, it's going to bring in wildlife that's actually going to use these shores and we can enjoy watching them,” Cagide Elmer said.

http://www.twcnews.com/nys/central-ny/news/2016/09/24/onondaga-lake-clean-up-efforts.html


"To see that all of this plant life is here and that the birds are coming is awesome,” said Potrikus. Volunteers say there's still a lot of work to be done before the lake cleanup is finished, but what you see here now is already a huge step forward from what it was even just a year ago. "Just the beginning of this summer, all of this was not here,” said Cagide Elmer. “And it is so remarkable. Everybody we bring here, you just say, there was nothing here. And their eyes are so wide. We could not be happier and more excited for the future and the more wetlands we're planning on constructing throughout the next year." And they'll do it all with the help of their volunteers. So far more than 650 people have donated their time to help the OLCC's cleanup efforts since 2012.
