Welcome to the web site of the Sacandaga Protection Committee. Formed in 2009 in response to proposed changes to the 80 year old Sacandaga Lake permit system, the SPC's mission is to protect the environmental, economic and legal interests of the entire lake community. Although the permit system rule changes have been put on hold, the SPC continues to support the interests of the lake community. The SPC is active in several onging issues with potential impact to the lake community.
2014 was another busy year for the Sacandaga Protection Committee; we continued to address several issues that seem to have carried over year after year, addressed a few new concerns, and continued our annual summertime and fall fundraisers. Click HERE for the January 2015 Update

Legislation was introduced in the New York State Assembly on May 14, 2014 (Bill A09650) that would abolish the Hudson River Black River Regulating District (HRBRRD) and transfer their responsibilities to the New York State Power Authority. The Sacandaga Protection Committee (SPC) opposes this legislation.
