2003-Wabamun Lake Water Quality 1982-2001

In the early 1980s, Alberta Environment established a formal water quality monitoring program at Wabamun Lake. The program was designed to determine long-term patterns in the overall water quality of the lake. It was not designed to evaluate the effects of specific activities (e.g., point and non-point source inputs) in the watershed. The objectives of this report are: 1. To summarise patterns in the water quality of Wabamun Lake using data collected by Alberta Environment from 1982 to 2001 2. To evaluate the main changes of lake water quality as they relate to aquatic biota, lake level, lake water balance, and effects of the WL-WTP inflow to the lake. Read More
