Water Quality Testing - Breaking News
Following a thoughtful assessment, MLA is cancelling its annual Water Quality testing program for this season. No measurement is more urgent or important than the health of our members. Recent extension of the Province’s state of emergency has rendered the May sampling, which is the mainstay of the program, essentially unlawful. Observation of ongoing Social Distancing guidelines is problematic within the confines of a boat and most of our boats are also in lockdown. When restrictions are lifted, limited sampling of known areas of concern may be considered later in the summer but only if members health can be protected. Given that we have 19 years of accumulated data at many of our sites, a one-year hiatus will be manageable from a lake health trend analysis perspective.
