CSLAP Report Search

All known digital CSLAP reports are now on line.  

To access the reports, enter the name of the lake in the field after Lake Name, and in the drop down menu box next to type, click on "CSLAP Reports".  You can also see the reports in any county by selecting the county from that drop down box. Note that lakes that span multiple counties will only be listed under one county: use the lake name in that case. If you want to limit your search to a certain year, enter the year in the file name field. Click on search to get the reports. Once the search returns reports, click on the report name to view the report.  Click on the link below to start your search for reports.

Selected statewide and regional CSLAP reports can be accessed by clicking the year. No statewide or regional reports were prepared for sampling years 2011 through 2016.

In 2017, a Finger Lakes regional report summarized the testing of the Finger Lakes. The individual lake reports can be found using the search function

Finger Lakes Regional Report - 2017

Starting with reports for 2016, individual lake reports are more graphical, and much of the analysis is imbedded in regional reports. The lake reports are still available by the report search, and the regional reports are below.

Lower Hudson                      2016
Mid-Hudson                          2016

Central New York                 2016
Finger Lakes                        2016

Regional and statewide reports have been prepared at several times in the program's history.

The most recent CSLAP reports are also available on the NYSDEC website Water Reports by County .

Some early statewide reports have been found and posted. For some years, we extracted short reports on the lakes that participated each year and those lake reports can be found by using the search reports feature shown above. (A work in progress as we get more reports.) The complete report posted below includes the individual lake reports. Because of size constraints, some of them are in sections. 

 Statewide report 1986
 Statewide report 1987
 Statewide report 1988   
 Statewide report 1989 (Incomplete)
Statewide report 1990   Statewide Report   Lakes A - K   Lakes L - Z
