Lake George

Lake George is seen from Bolton Landing on July 7. The Town of Bolton is considering a similar waterfront septic system inspection law as the Town of Queensbury, as are other municipalities around the lake.

Bolton Supervisor Ron Conover said the town is also interested in passing a local law similar to the town of Queensbury's that requires septic system inspections upon the transfer of waterfront properties. 

The town adopted an updated local waterfront revitalization plan last year, which included a septic system replacement provision, Conover said. The inspections are intended to make sure systems are working properly and not leaking and hurting water quality. 

The Lake George Association recently sent out letters to municipalities around the lake, asking them to consider passing something like Queensbury's local law.

"I would expect that sometime next year, early next year, we would be considering legislation at that time," Conover said. "It's something we've been working on for a while, as part of our planning process."

Fort Ann Supervisor Richard Moore, Hague Supervisor Edna Frasier and Putnam Supervisor John LaPointe also said their town boards were considering the suggestion. 

Ticonderoga Supervisor Joseph Giordano, Lake George Supervisor Dennis Dickinson and Dresden Supervisor Paul Ferguson did not respond to The Post-Star's request for comment.
