The Williams Lake Conservation Company has recently begun working with Love Your Lake, “…a shoreline evaluation program developed by Watersheds Canada and the Canadian Wildlife Federation (CWF), and conducted for any shoreline community across the country by local organizations.”
A potential blue-green algal bloom that appeared in Williams Lake on Sunday July 18th has now cleared. The bloom was limited to a stretch of shoreline near the junction of Wyndrock Drive and Litchfield Crescent. A local resident alerted the Williams Lake Conservation Company (WLCC) and contacted the provincial Department of Environment.
Microscopic examination of a water sample taken this afternoon near Wyndrock Drive and Litchfield Crescent, is consistent with a blue-green algal bloom.
The Williams Lake Conservation Company (WLCC), the Urban Farm Museum Society of Spryfield (UFMSS) and the Backlands Coalition are working together on a new project named “Sparrows Hawks & Doves.” Come to the Urban Farm to join in celebrating the project and help raise awareness of our birds.
Dartmouth MLAs call for Environment Department to ‘step up, take care’ of lakes: ‘The MLAs would like to see an urban lake commission or agency, with representation from all three levels of government, advocates, community groups and residents, struck to act as a “central clearinghouse of responsibility and expertise,” ‘ (photo: Tim Krochak)
