About the CLA

The CLA’s mission is to provide effective and efficient lake maintenance services for the benefit of all Chautauqua Lake users. As the “Stewards of the Lake,” the CLA serves to promote and facilitate the ongoing scientific monitoring of Chautauqua Lake and its ecosystem.

We perform annual general lake maintenance, aquatic vegetation control, floating debris removal, shoreline and post-storm clean-up, plus scientific monitoring to meet lake management needs.
