Information about lake water quality and living near a lake was distributed by three groups which had a display beside the lake July 31.
René Crawley with Red Deer River Watershed Alliance, Dana Stromberg and Elynne Murray with Alberta Lake Management Society and Graeme Strathdee with Sylvan Lake Watershed Stewardship Society (SLWSS) answered questions and provided information. Stromberg also works with Nature Alberta as a shoreline advisor for the Living By Water educational initiative which includes home site evaluations with residents.
About 35 evaluations are planned this year, bringing the total number completed with residents living around Sylvan Lake to over 80 during the past four summers, said Steven Johnson with SLWSS.
Nikki Coles, another SLWSS director, noted a lot of the people who stopped by the booth were concerned about the lake level.
