The Wells College Center for Sustainability and the Environment presents a Sustainability Perspectives Series talk featuring Bruce Natale, P.E., Environmental Engineer with Cayuga County Planning and Economic Development. The event, titled "Invasive Threats to Water Quality," will explore how the quality of our drinking water can be negatively impacted by non-native plants and animals that out-compete native species and disrupt normal ecological balances. Aquatic invasives in Cayuga Lake include Asian clam and Zebra mussels, Eurasian Watermilfoil and Hydrilla. Even terrestrial invasives like Hemlock Woolly Adelgid can negatively impact waterways feeding into the lake.
The Sustainability Perspectives series, which explores the concept of sustainability from a variety of viewpoints, is free and open to the public.
