Onondaga Lake: Ice Cover
A view towards the city of Syracuse from the ice at North Deep on Onondaga lake.
Trained Water Environment Protection (WEP) technicians collect samples from Onondaga Lake throughout the year to characterize water quality and biological conditions. Most sampling occurs between April and November when the lake is free of ice. Physical factors, such as the development and extent of ice cover are also tracked. During the winter of 2014-2015, ice cover extended for 95 days in the north basin (first observed on 01/05/2015) and 89 days lake wide (first observed on 01/08/2015).
