Mark Emmerson, president of the Silver Lake Association (SLA), the Silver Lake Cottage Owners Association since 1961, has been researching his organizations meeting minutes in an effort to write an accurate history of the Association.
"By organizing the archived files of the Silver Lake Association," Mark stated on the Association's website, "I was able to publish a story containing facts of the SLA history, collected from the notes and minutes of the SLA monthly meetings, a history that needed to be shared." An Organization of volunteers that Incorporated in 1961 for the purpose of cleaning up the pollution in Silver Lake at that time, is now a mainstay of this community. SLA and it’s volunteers are involved with so much more then the Water Quality of Silver Lake which is, and always will be, the number one concern of this organization. They have been tirelessly protecting this beautiful resource of this community that was known as “Vacationland”.

The water pressure in the Institute grounds and surrounding properties including the Charcoal Corral is sub-standard and will not allow for any further tapping of the system. Officials want to improve water pressure by piping the "end of the line" back into the system which begins at the water tower and adding a water pumping station at the tower's location. The bad news is that there is currently no funding available for such a project and no written plans drawn up at this point, according to Town of Castile Clerk Vickie Draper. Against this background, officials want public input into the proposal which will be held on December 29th at a location to be announced.
The Institute and Corral are at the very "end of the line" and the line dead-ends instead of connecting back into the system. The highest point of the Institute property is approximately equal to the height of the water tower, also making for reduced water pressure. A couple of years ago, water officials approached the SLI Board of Trustees asking if they would permit the building of a pump station on SLI forest property on the south side of Camp Road. Some of the details were in the early stages of being worked out, when water officials announced that they were going to do something else and would not be locating on SLI property.

The National Weather Service issued three different warning statements over the weekend to help people prepare for what sounded like a significant winter event. Warnings ranged from "a Lake Effect Snow Advisory" which zeroed in on Wyoming County, through "Lake Effect Snow Warning" and eventually landing on "a Special Weather Statement" again for Wyoming County, but in the higher regions.
As for the Institute, Lakeview Drive provided the most wintry scene at times because of the wind racing across the unobstructed water, but on the whole, the Institute faired well with a total of 2 to 3 inches total as opposed to the warnings of "2 to 3 inches per hour." Even church attendance at the local United Methodist Church seemed unaffected by what some called "just a regular winter day in Western New York."

All of New York State remains under a drought watch. You can do your part to save water. Don’t waste water waiting for it to get hot or cold. Capture it for other uses such as plant watering or heat it on the stove or in a microwave, and keep a pitcher of water in the refrigerator. For more tips on conserving water, visit DEC’s Saving Water Makes Good Sense webpage.
