So we have millions of fish, ducks ,geese, birds, seagulls, and a bazillion other critters who's poop ends up in the lake everyday not to mention the poop from farm animals and we now have another environmental disaster just because a few thousand gallons of human waste went into the lake. I know, all that other stuff is natural and humans aren't natural crazy

On a side note the e coli level at Seneca Lake State Park is currently the highest of all state parks....so we got that going for us as well.
