As Club members may be aware, the two lake associations are participating in a volunteer water testing program organized by the Quebec government.  For the latest test results and background information about this program check out the Water Quality page.  Here the executive summary:

"The bottom line is that the water quality of our two lakes is uniformly high. While reassuring, we should probably not be complacent. Both natural and human factors can influence a lake’s transparency level and trophic state. Nutrients carried into water bodies from non-point sources such as agricultural runoff, residential fertilisers, phosphate detergents and sewage can all increase the algal biomasss, and can easily cause an oligotrophic lake to become eutrophic over time."
