“No Swimming” Buoy in Silver Lake

FYI to all…
There were many inquiries about the new “No Swimming” buoy at the north end (just south of sandy point) of Silver Lake. This is the message I received…
The village of Perry, DEC, State or Sheriff Patrols are not responsible. Just found out it is Mt. Morris. This is where their water intake is. Please do not swim or boat close to this buoy. They did get state permission for the buoy. The sediment around this intake is interfering with the quality of water they are receiving.
I thank everyone with their communications and cooperation with this matter!
Mark Emmerson SLA President

SLA and DEC can use assistance from SL residents

The SLA would appreciate help with this matter.  
“DEC is investigating the dead fish at Silver Lake. They would be helped by having a semi-live fish of any kind (e.g., half dead, swimming upside down). If you can safely secure such a fish, net it and place it in a ziplock bag and put in your refrigerator (DO NOT FREEZE).  Then call 716-372-0645, tell them who you are, that you are at Silver Lake, identify what you have, and they will arrange for pick up.  DEC’s current thinking is that the dead fish are associated with spawning stress and/or low oxygen levels. So, it is safe to eat fish you already have or about to catch.”
Mark Emmerson SLA President
