At 32 miles in length, with billion gallons of water and a variety of conditions from community to community, Lake George is best served by the watchful gaze of citizens all around the Lake, with many hands and eyes keeping track of conditions and protecting the water. For that purpose, the Lake George Association created our Citizen Science program and sustains it with our members and friends. Our members and our friends participate in programs to monitor lake quality, area wildlife, stream health, and invasive species. All of the data that the citizen scientists bring us or that the Lake George Association staff collects on streams, on lake conditions, on wildlife or other subjects is used to make important management decisions now and in the future to help protect the Lake and its wildlife. If you have any questions about these programs, please call and talk with our Education staff, or email LGA Education Director Kristen Wilde.

Additionally, we swim through and survey milfoil sites in Lake George multiple times each summer to ensure the removal process is effective after our contractor has stopped working in an area. But it is not an easy job. Because the plant self-fragments, pieces of milfoil from patches break off and re-root nearby, confounding efforts to completely eradicate it. Several methods to control milfoil in Lake George have been used, including hand harvesting and matting. See the Comprehensive report of milfoil management operations on Lake George — pdf. Eurasian watermilfoil Myriophyllum spicatum is an invasive aquatic plant native to Europe, Asia and North Africa.
Water supply and sanitation in Indonesia is characterized by poor levels of access and service quality. Over 40 million people lack access to an improved water source and more than million of the country's million population has no access to improved sanitation. Water pollution is widespread on Bali and Java. Furthermore, policy responsibilities are fragmented between different Ministries. Since decentralization was introduced in Indonesia in local governments districts have gained responsibility for water supply and sanitation.
Transfer of Irrigation Infrastructure to Water Users. Central Asia has a complex and extensive irrigation infrastructure which requires substantial financial and material resources in order to maintain it effectively. The transition of the Central Asian countries from centralized control to a market economy, including in agriculture, has resulted in a reduction in state budget allocations for this sector. One of the most effective ways of solving this problem is to transfer responsibility for the management, operation and maintenance of water systems to water users themselves.
