Sylvan Lake Water Quality Assessment and Watershed Management Considerations

This study by AXYS Environmental Consulting Ltd. was prompted by public concern about the cumulative impacts of growing development pressures around Sylvan Lake, and the desire to know the sensitivity of the lake to further development and other land use activities in the watershed. Completed in July 2005, the study brought together representatives from the eight municipalities around the lake, as well as officials from various provincial and federal government agencies, to consider what can be done to maintain acceptable lake water quality conditions. The AXYS Report is a valuable resource document that will assist us in our decision-making responsibilities. It contains many suggestions and recommendations for responsible watershed planning and development to protect water quality.
