Water & Air

Water & Air

Clean water is the greatest ecological and economic resource of the Adirondack Park. Thousands of lakes and streams provide habitat, recreational opportunities and drinking water. Acid rain and air pollution have long damaged the Park’s waters. Climate change threatens native species and the winter economy.

Fighting for clean water and clean air; combating invasive species and climate change. Goals include:

  • Keep Adirondack waters safe and fund clean water infrastructure projects.
  • Eliminate 90 percent of winter road salt use and maintain safe roads.
  • Reduce acid rain and mercury impacts by 90 percent.
  • Continue to reduce the carbon program cap and buy and retire carbon pollution credits through the Carbon Reduction Certificate Program.
  • Strengthen and fund efforts to combat invasive species.
  • Distribute strong science that strengthens programs and policies to address ecological threats.
