2020 Lake Steward Program Update
The Lake Stewards from Paul Smith's College have arrived! They have been monitoring the NYSDEC boat launch since Memorial Day Weekend. The Boat Wash Station will be opening in the next week or so. The current plan is described below, but may change in response to local, state, and/or federal requirements.
- The LLA and the Town of Long Lake will continue to support Lake Stewards at the NYSDEC boat launches on Long Lake and Forked Lake, starting on Memorial Day weekend. These Lake Stewards are funded through a NYSDEC grant coordinated by Paul Smith's College.
- The Boat Wash Station in the Long Lake Municipal Parking Lot will be open Thursdays through Mondays and manned by a Paul Smith's Lake Steward. This program is funded through generous donations to the Long Lake Association and by the Town of Long Lake.
- The Lake Stewards will follow all COVID-19 guidelines for social distancing, handwashing, and wearing of face masks.
Thank you to Paul Smith's College Adirondack Watershed Institute for all they do to coordinate and maintain these programs. It has been a pleasure working with them over the years and watching the programs mature.
Message from the President - June 7, 2020
Although Hamilton County is not immune to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are fortunate to be living in a place where so far we have only had 4 cases of COVID-19 in the county. Hamilton County Public Health, the Hamilton County Board of Supervisors (BOS), the county schools, and other county agencies have been meeting weekly to keep up to date on the latest guidelines and re-opening requirements. Our residents are adopting the CDC and the NYSDOH guidelines for staying home, social distancing, hand washing, etc. and will continue to do so until the experts tell us otherwise.
We welcome our seasonal residents and visitors to Long Lake and hope that you will follow the necessary precautions to ensure everyone's safety as we move towards a "new normal.:" The Long Lake Association schedule of events has been adjusted to reflect the current restrictions for mass gatherings, so this year we will not be sponsoring the Paddling Olympics and we will be adjusting the location of our Annual Get-Together and Meeting. Check out the Calendar of Events for more details and periodic updates.
I will continue to post relevant updates from the County BOS, Hamilton County Public Health, the Town of Long Lake, the CDC, and the NYSDOH on the Long Lake Association Facebook page.
For the most up to date information on COVID-19 for New York State, please refer to these websites:website which Alex is updating regularly.
Our local health department is the Hamilton County Public Health Department, which can be reached at 518-648-6497, or check out their Facebook page for the latest updates.
Thank you for following the current restrictions related to COVID-19. I look forward to seeing everyone as soon as the circumstances allow. Meanwhile, the Long Lake Association will continue to move forward with the usual lake management activities and keep you posted about them.
Stay well and safe.
