Recently the Town of Scipio adopted Resolution 2021-17 to endorse the Lake Friendly Living Pledge locally sponsored by the Owasco Lake Watershed Management Council. Scipio's Town Board is promoting pollution reduction strategies for land and water stewardship within the Owasco Lake Watershed.

The Town of Scipio encourages town residents to make eco-friendly choices that positively enhances their impact on lake water quality and the health and safety of water consumers. The following practices were adopted:

I pledge to refrain from using excessive lawn fertilizers and chemicals to help prevent Harmful Algal Blooms (HABs).

I will only use limited phosphorus-free fertilizers (as governed by NYS law), applied properly.

I will maintain my septic system.

I will reduce hazardous wastes and dispose of them properly.

I will dispose of prescription drugs properly; I will not flush them.

I will maintain my vehicles, watercrafts, and other recreational vehicles to reduce fluid leaks as well as the spread of aquatic invasive species.

I will use water wisely.

I will not dispose of leaf litter or lawn clippings in waterways or ditches.

I will strive to work towards practicing recommended Best Management Practices for land use activities within the Owasco Lake Watershed.

The Town of Scipio will work toward achieving the actions requested in this pledge within the town limits, in solidarity with those making such efforts throughout the Owasco Lake Watershed.
