Our Lakes Need a Good Guardian
The Leadership Team of Gas Free Seneca,
responsible for winning the battle against a proposed gas storage and transport hub in the Finger Lakes, has formed Seneca Lake Guardian, A Waterkeeper Alliance Affiliate, the only organization dedicated to actively working to protect the Finger Lakes from dirty industrial projects that could threaten the health of our lakes, our rural community character, the Finger Lakes Brand, or the livelihoods of the small business owners who depend on the lakes for their success. Our lakes are at risk. We need a good Guardian to protect them.

Greenidge Generation LLC is a natural gas power plant that's mining cryptocurrency on an industrial scale, and Greenidge aims to expand its operations in a small, rural town in the heart of the Finger Lakes, situated on the west side of Seneca Lake.
