What is the Owasco Watershed Lake Association?

The Owasco Watershed Lake Association is a 501 C-3 not-for-profit corporation founded to educate the public on the environmental management, preservation, wise use, and appreciation of Owasco Lake and its watershed. We are a citizen-based association that promotes cooperation and leadership in the comprehensive management of land use, water quality, recreation, agriculture and a host of other issues as they pertain to Owasco Lake and its watershed.


Why Is the OWLA important to you?

Owasco Lake provides the residents of Auburn, Cayuga County, and surrounding communities with drinking water, recreation, and wildlife habitat. For many, Owasco Lake is a place to commune with nature.


Protecting Owasco Lake is essential to the maintenance of our community character and the improvement of our economic future. The Owasco Watershed Lake Association recognizes this and has joined together to draw attention to the value and importance of Owasco Lake.
