July 20/2021…Water Quality in Commanda and Restoule Lakes
Many alert cottagers and permanent area residents have been taking notice of the water quality in our beloved lakes.
There has been an example of blue green algae growth found that indicates a change in nutrient status in some parts of Commanda Lake. As a minimum we must all be on the look out for such growths and report them if found.
As many folks are aware, The Province of Ontario has developed a “Lake Partner Program” whereby area residents volunteer to take water samples periodically and submit them to the Province for analysis.
There have been measurements done on both Commanda and Restoule Lakes.
Water samples taken, importantly measure phosphorus levels which are used to measure nutrient levels in the water. The higher the level the more chance of algae growth. Test levels above “10” can lead to algae growth. But more importantly, testing done over years can show the trending health of the lakes.
Because of Covid, the testing program was apparently suspended in 2020 so the last published results were from 2019.
Commanda’s phosphorus measurement was recorded as 10.8 and Restoule’s was 8.4.
For excellent explanations and details please check the following links and you will be able to find the actual readings for our lakes.
Any volunteers who wish to join this program would be doing a great service to the community.
