The New York Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) is inviting the public to participate in a virtual meeting to discuss the Integrated Watershed Action Plans (IWAPs) for Sterling and Wolcott Creeks.


The Sterling Creek and Wolcott Creek sub-watersheds, located within multiple towns in New York, drain into Lake Ontario. Covering a combined area of 204 square miles, the watershed includes diverse ecosystems such as coastal areas, wetlands, forests, and streams.
