Skaneateles Lake's rich, blue water is as clean as Onondaga's is dirty. William Henry Seward, world traveler and the Secretary of Stte under Abraham Lincoln, called Skaneateles Lake "the most beautiful body of water in the world."...It is among the clearest lakes in the country, with water transparency readings occasionally exceeding 50 feet (15 meters), rivaling the water clarity usually found only in sterile, highly acidic lakes." (p. 23)
