As the largest freshwater lake onLong Island, Lake Ronkonkoma has suffered in the past from pollution, invasive
species and poor property management, and the Lake Management Planning Servicesprogram would go a long way in both measuring current progress and preserving
any improvements that have been made. “We’ve come a long way,” LegislatorKennedy remarked, “but we have a long way to go, and with the help of SUNY
Oneonta and the NYSFLA we can get there faster than ever.”
