AdkAction.org purchased three sets of stream monitors to track NY State's attempts to reduce salt use along Route 3 between Tupper Lake and Saranac Lake, one of four roads the State is using as test areas for new approaches to winter road maintenance. Paul Smith's Adirondack Watershed Institute (PSAWI) installed the monitors in three streams, one each on the upstream and downstream sides of the highway. PSAWI will compile the results of these flows on a continuous basis.
AdkAction.org wrote letters of support for PSAWI's application for additional grant funding to acquire five more sets of monitors. On June 25th they received word that the Lake Champlain Basin Program had accepted their application. These additional monitors will be deployed on other roads in the test set starting in August.
