Farming Community Does Its Part To Protect Lake

May 5, 2013
By David Halbohm and David Spann (editorial@post-journal.com)

The article "Prendergast Library Holds Critical Discussion on Lake Health" that appeared in the May 1 edition of The Post-Journal included the statement "Seventy-one percent of the phosphorus that reaches the lake comes from farm fields" We feel that statement is inaccurate. It is the opinion of The Chautauqua County Soil & Water Conservation District, and the USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service that the farming community in the Chautauqua Lake Watershed is currently doing more than any other group to minimize nutrient loading and sedimentation into the lake.
