Seneca Lake Pure Waters has welcomed a new face to their local environmental team.
Seneca Lake Pure Waters Association announced on Monday that Kaitlin Fello has been hired as its part-time Administrative Coordinator. She will work with Pure Waters Officers and Board members to expand efforts to preserve, promote and protect Seneca Lake Water Quality.
Fello is a Geneva HS graduate and holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Environmental Studies from SUNY University at Buffalo and a Masters of Professional Studies in Water Resources Engineering from SUNY Environmental Science and Forestry, Syracuse, NY. She was selected from a pool of over 70 applicants.
“We are thrilled to have Kailtin join our organization and her educational background is a great fit for the important work that Pure Waters does” says Jacob Welch, President of Seneca Lake Pure Waters Association.
As Administrative Coordinator, Fello is tasked with developing a strategy for the association’s day-to-day operations as well as promoting the important work of Seneca Lake Pure Waters. Her responsibilities include managing association communications including newsletters, website, social media and events; supporting the board and its committees; working with partner organizations; spearheading fundraising activities and grant opportunities; as well as administrative manager duties.
Fello’s hiring is part of a Pure Waters initiative to significantly expand it’s capacity to positively impact the lake. Key association initiatives, such as the Hazardous Algal Bloom and Stream Monitoring programs, are expanding to better serve the public and provide meaningful input to the 9 Element planning effort that will guide future watershed improvement projects. Pure Waters will also be implementing two new water quality programs in the coming months; an Invasive Species monitoring program and a Lake Friendly Program, both of which will be important components in addressing Seneca Lake water quality.
