(Department of Environmental Conservation took control of Lake George outlet dam in summer of 1974.)

The planting of such trees is particularly important, since in many places the large number of people using the islands makes natural reproduction of the trees impossible, so that the only way to insure new growth for the future is to plant.

these additional findings: “The dam serves the function of holding back the waters of Lake George and converting it in effect into an enormous reservoir. The waters of the spring floods are stored for use in the drier seasons. This helps to stabilize the water level of the lake and also aids in the development of water power at the dam site”. The record shows disputes as to the fact and extent of damage caused by the dam’s flooding operations to the shores and islands of the lake and …

State Aide’s Opinion
Last November Henry L. Diamond, New York State’s Commissioner of Environmental Conservation, released a report of preliminary studies, paid for by International Paper, that he said indicated “that the ecology of the lake could be adversely affected by a large‐scale sludge removal operation.”
Technicians on the Vermont side, however, are firmly convinced that removal is necessary.
Fred I. Parker, that state’s Deputy Attorney General, said: “Any danger in removing the sludge is a lot less than the danger of leaving it there. ” Now there are oxygen levels of zero in the water in some places. How much worse can you get?
Mr. Parker, last December, carried Vermont’s case to the United States Supreme Court, charging in a brief that the sludge was “depriving the citizens of the State of Vermont of their rights to swim, fish, boat, travel Upon and enjoy the waters of Lake Champlain free from stench and filth.”
Down on Lake Champlain at the edge of town, Bill Rader, who runs the small ferry across to Vermont, said the water was now clear enough at times to let him see the propellor of his boat, the Ethan Allen.
“Before, the water was a brown liquid that smelled strictly like rotten eggs,” he said as the boat chugged across the lake. “Tourists used to ride across holding their noses and saying ‘never again!’ “
On the surface the situation here seems like a rare success story in pollution abatement. But just below the surface of Lake Cham plain is a 1,500‐acre mound of sludge, 20 feet thick in some places, left over from the paper mill as well as earlier and simpler industries dating back 200 years.
Today, although the black ooze has stopped coming from the mill, gas bubbles still rise from the decom posing sludge and bits of decaying material occasionally come to the surface.
Sludge Still a Problem
Some leading residents here and the State of Ver mont are adamant that the sludge is a continuing pol lution threat and must be re moved now.
International Paper counters by saying that it should not be held responsible for the sludge because some of it was deposited by others and in any case all of it was dumped in the lake when such disposal was considered a reasonable way of doing business.
Now the dispute is resolved could set a precedent because up to now efforts have been aimed mainly at stopping current pollution and little attempt has been made to assess the responsibility for past actions.
But if the task of fixing past blame is difficult in this relatively undeveloped region the job would be many times greater in, say, the Hudson River off New York City, where hundreds of industries over the years have added to the muck on the river bottom.
Jan 22, 2014 – The environmental movement was just beginning in the 1970s when. Vermont’s Attorney General, Jim Jeffords, sued New York over sewage sludge discharged directly to Lake Champlain from an International Paper Company plant in Ticonderoga, New York.
The Village of Ticonderoga used the LaChute as an Open Sewer for more than 150 years and still at times do.
As a result of these discharges the interstate waters of Lake Champlain and its tributaries are polluted by the presence of bacteria, solids, oxygen demanding material and nutrients. In addition, some of these waters are affected by the accumulation of bottom sludge deposits and floating sludge masses. This pollution limits …

1974 …. Interesting Date in 1980 The Dam is STILL 54% Incapable of Proper water level releases ???A. P. REALE AND SONS, INC Ticonderoga NYIn 1971, the mill in this area was shut down when the new mill was constructed. There had been a dam at this site in one form or another since the 1750’s. The existing masonry dam was built in 1903. By 1974, the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation began a state dam project in this area. Demolition of the old paper mill buildings was well underway. A. P. Reale and Sons of Ticonderoga had a $37,640 contract with the state to complete the demolition. The center of the original masonry dam which regulated the Lake George water level was reconstructed. Three new gates were installed, each capable of handling 300 cubic feet of water.
I am Guessing the NYS Government REBUILT the Dam # 260 AKA Dam ” A ” in or around the FEW YEARS AFTER The Witham Marina was repeatedly DESTROYED by the PREVIOUS ….. ” Pinhole Flusher “D & H Railroad OWNED the Dam at one time with International Paper and Power and System PropertiesThese RELEASE GATE REBUILDS and INSTALLS are the focus of the FOIA Request

The capacity has been likened to draining a bathtub through a pinhole. When water entering the lake exceeds the maximum rate that can be discharged, the lake rises.
