Environmental Scientist Appointed for Village of Greenwood Lake

In an effort to monitor lake quality, develop a coordinated system of lake management efforts and create an environment in which we are more competitive to receive grant funding, the Village of Greenwood Lake has appointed a fully volunteer Environmental Scientist. Col. John Graham, PhD., is the Chief Scientist and Associate Dean for Research at West Point. Col Graham grew up in Greenwood Lake and later attended West Point Military Academy, received his M.S. at Ohio State and PhD at the prestigious Carnegie Mellon University. He has served several tours of duty in both Iraq and Afghanistan. Col. Graham will lead a team of committed volunteers, including his daughter, Summer Graham, a current molecular biology student at Appalachian State Univ. and Village Resident Peter Anderson, a recent graduate of SUNY Maritime Academy with a degree in Marine Environmental Science. Together, this team will help continue efforts of ensuring our lake, and the environment surrounding the lake, are working in the most sustainable way possible. One of the aspects of their studies will also be to determine if the herbicide program has any noticeably adverse effects on the lake and its ecology.
