A recent study by Paul Smith’s College Adirondack Watershed Institute (AWI) of 358 private wells across the Adirondack Park found that salt used to clear ice and snow from roads in the wintertime is contaminating groundwater and seeping into private wells at an alarming rate.

Two State Legislative Priorities for the Adirondacks | APA and ATV Reform
Spring is here, and many are pulling their hiking gear out of their closets and putting their winter coats away. Spring is a time of hope and opportunity, and there is great potential as the state Legislature resumes its session after completing the budget process and taking a brief hiatus.
