The Environment Council for Clear, Ston(e)y and White Lakes is a volunteer, non-profit group.
Our goal is to preserve and enhance the sustainability of the local watershed environment for future generations of humans and wildlife.
WHAT WE DO
Making A Difference
DISSOLVED OXYGEN TESTING
Wondering how climate change affects our water? So were we. So, with the support of the Ministry of the Environment, Conservation and Parks, Environment Council is conducting Dissolved Oxygen tests at three deep water sites on Upper Stoney, Stony, and Clear Lakes.
Old and faulty septic systems and holding tanks pollute lake water and pose significant threats to human health. They discharge nutrients such as nitrogen and phosphorus, and can contaminate surface and groundwater resources.
The EC recently highlighted the need for further environmental assessment of the development proposal for Pilgrim’s Rest, Upper Stoney, and we continue to monitor the large-scale expansion plans for the Lovesick Lake Trailer Park, immediately upstream from Stony Lake.
A natural shoreline is a healthy shoreline. That’s because they slow down nutrient runoff, reduce erosion, and provide food and shelter for fish and other wildlife. When you alter a natural shoreline – even with the best intentions, you upset a delicate – and essential – balance.
