Johnson DonationLAKEWOOD, N.Y. (JULY 9, 2013) - PICTURED ARE PAUL W. SWANSON, GENERAL 
MANAGER OF THE CHAUTAUQUA LAKE ASSOCIATION AND CAROLE SELLSTROM, 
EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR OF THE JOHN ALFRED AND OSCAR JOHNSON MEMORIAL TRUST.  
THE TRUST DONATED $10,000 TO THE CLA TOWARDS THE 2013 MANDATED FCC RADIO 
UPGRADE. THIS UPGRADE ENSURES THAT THE CLA IS IN COMPLIANCE WITH THE NEW 
FEDERAL RULING. 

BEING IN CONSTANT CONTACT WITH THE CREWS IS VITAL FOR THE GENERAL 
MANGER; SUMMER STORMS CAN APPROACH QUICKLY ON THE LAKE.  CREWS CAN BE 
WARNED IMMEDIATELY TO GO TO SHORE OUT OF HARMS WAY.  INSTANT 
COMMUNICATION IS ALSO NEEDED IN CASE OF AN EMERGENCY.  EACH PIECE OF 
EQUIPMENT HAS A RADIO.  THESE RADIOS ARE HELPFUL FOR OPERATIONAL 
EFFICENCY, MAKING IT VERY EASY FOR HARVESTERS AND BARGES TO COMMUNICATE 
WITH TRANSPORTERS AND DUMP SITES. THE CLA CURRENTLY HAS 6 HARVESTERS, 3 
TRANSPORTS AND 3 BARGES WORKING 10 HOURS A DAY, 5 DAYS A WEEK IN 3 AREAS 
OF THE LAKE, MAYVILLE, BEMUS POINT AND LAKEWOOD.

THE CLA'S MISSION IS TO PROVIDE EFFECTIVE AND EFFICIENT LAKE 
MAINTENANCE SERVICES FOR THE BENEFIT OF ALL CHAUTAUQUA LAKE USERS. AS 
THE "STEWARDS OF THE LAKE," THE CLA SERVES TO PROMOTE AND FACILITATE THE 
ONGOING SCIENTIFIC MONITORING OF CHAUTAUQUA LAKE AND ITS ECOSYSTEM.
