1978 Sylvan Lake Regulation Study by Alberta Environment

The report entitled "Sylvan Lake Regulation Study" prepared by the Planning Division was carried out to determine the desirability and need for regulating the water level of Sylvan Lake and to determine the feasibility, cost and impact of regulation. The primary purpose of regulation would be to enhance the recreational capabilities of Sylvan Lake.

The study considered several alternatives for regulation and asessed their effects on the natural and social environment of the area. The effects of supplying water from Sylvan Lake to maintain favourable water levels for waterfowl on Cygnet Lake and the effects of releasing effluent from the Town of Sylvan Lake sewage lagoon were also assessed.
