2019 Shorescaping Projects were awarded approximately $6,600 from ONONDAGA COUNTY SOIL AND WATER CONSERVATION DISTRICT to modify three residential shorelines to improve storm water runoff, decrease erosion, remove invasive plant species and replace them with native plants. Last year, we also removed a degrading tire retaining wall and planted shoreline shrubs to stabilize the area. WE WILL BE FUNDING ONE OR TWO PROPERTIES FOR 2020. PLEASE LET COLLEEN KNOW IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN MORE INFORMATION.
