Road Salts Threaten Lakes
Even though three-quarters of the watershed is undeveloped, salt inputs from the other 1/4 threaten the health of Colpitt Lake and Williams Lake.
The Williams Lake Conservation Company monitors both rainfall levels in the watershed area, and water levels in the lake itself.

The Williams Lake Conservation Company monitors important environmental indicators.
E. coli is a bacteria which is found in the intestines of animals. High levels indicate the water is contaminated. The graph includes data from 2001 to 2012 from the eastern and western ends of the lake.
