Senator Rachel May advances Adopt A Lake bill through Senate

April 27, 2023

Senator Rachel May passed, with the Senator Majority, an Earth Day 2023 bill package, ensuring New York remains a leader in protecting our planet. It includes protecting waterways, reducing harmful chemicals in products, and much more.  Senator May's Adopt A Lake program is included in the bill package. 

The Adopt A Lake program adds lakes to areas eligible to participate in the Municipal Adoption Program, allowing volunteer groups to enter into agreements to maintain these natural resources

The program will create caretakers for New York’s precious freshwater resources, allowing communities to get involved with maintaining the beauty and quality of our beautiful waterways.
