The Oneida County Lakes and Rivers Association is hoping to influence the Oneida County Board of Supervisors into adopting a stronger shoreline protection ordinance for the county.

 

The state requires some protection, but this association would like to ensure new buildings are built 75 feet from shore, current buildings take steps to reduce run-off such as planting native plants and using rain barrels. In addition, they are asking the county to get more involved with permits and inspections.
