UPDATE: 2022 water quality test results
Second set of summer 2022 water quality test results released
August, 2022 UPDATE— Our crew of testing volunteers has completed the second set of samples to monitor the water quality in our lake
ASSOCIATION TEST RESULTS
1) Our Association's sampling program measures bacteria (E.coli) levels to determine safety for swimming. Results to date show that our lake is safe for swimming.
2) Our Association's sampling program also measures total Phosphorus (TP) levels to determine nutrient levels. Results to date show that our lake has an excessive nutrient load that promotes the growth of milfoil and algae.
The next set of Association samples will be collected throughout August.
RSVL TEST RESULTS
Results of the first set of full RSVL test samples conducted in June 2022 have been released. Tests to date how that the lake is safe for swiimming. More samples will be taken as summer progresses, and analysis/verdict will be available only at the end of the season.
Reports will be posted as they are received
Milfoil Task Force explores milfoil control
June 2022 — Enviro Lac Gauvreau's Milfoil Task Force has been working on the best approaches to direct treatment of the pervasive weed. The Task Force had hoped to issue clear guidelines this Spring, but regulatory barriers have temporarily delayed this step forward.
Plans to control milfoil have followed two tracks: 1) measures designed to slow the spread of the weed—such as buoys, boating restrictions, etc. and 2) direct treatment.
Guidelines for Responsible Boating Practices
May 2022 — Enviro Lac Gauvreau formed a sub-committee that included a cross-section of the Lac Gauvreau community to develop responsible boating guidelines to minimize further spread of Eurasian milfoil.
We hope that you will adhere to these guidelines in the spirit with which they were developed: to enable us to continue to operate our boats on the lake in a manner that is safe and environmentally friendly.
