Bolton Landing, N.Y.
Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute
Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, IBM, and The FUND for Lake George today announced the launch of "The Jefferson Project at Lake George," a three-year, multi-million dollar collaboration with the goal of understanding and managing complex factors—including road salt, storm water runoff and invasive species —threatening one of the world's most pristine natural ecosystems and an economic cornerstone of the New York tourism industry. The collaboration partners expect that this world-class scientific and technology facility at Lake George will create a new model for predictive preservation and remediation of critical natural systems on Lake George, in New York, and ultimately around the world.
