What’s up with the fight against HABs in the Finger Lakes? Last month, an announcement about a Nine Element Plan in the Seneca-Keuka Watershed to address phosphorus runoff made headlines. But it isn’t the kind of flashy environmental news that gets a lot of attention. Especially in the Finger Lakes, where bitcoin mining, landfilling, and other issues frequently get the lead.
Today on episode #449 of Inside the FLX we catch up with Peter Mantius, an environmental politics reporter who founded The Water Front. His coverage, which is published on FingerLakes1.com through an exclusive partnership, goes in-depth on important issues like HABs, and this ‘9E’ plan.
He also discusses the latest news surrounding Greenidge Generation, a power plant turned bitcoin mining facility along Seneca Lake.
