Canandaigua Lake is one of the iconic Finger Lakes located in upstate New York, known for its beauty and the endless opportunities for boating, swimming, and fishing. The lake is also the drinking water source for approximately 70,000 residents. The Canandaigua Lake Watershed Council is an inter-municipal agency charged with maintaining and enhancing the high quality of Canandaigua Lake for generations to come. The Council members include the 14 watershed and water-purveying municipalities for the lake. They utilize an integrated watershed management approach to protect the lake, including research, protection, restoration and when necessary regulation. They are guided by the 2014 Comprehensive Update to the Canandaigua Lake Watershed Management Plan.
