The Wasa Lake Land Improvement District is a local government organization dedicated to maintaining water quality and quantity of Wasa Lake. Wasa Lake is located in the south eastern corner of British Columbia.
Please contact Murray Lytle at firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss non-resident concerns.
MONITORING WATER QUALITY AND QUANTITY
Trustees have been monitoring lake and river levels throughout the spring freshet, and will continue to sample water quality from beaches through the summer. The Canadian Recreational Water Quality guidelines recommends that E.coli should be less than 200 per 100 ml of water. E coli levels (analyzed by IHA) have continued at acceptably low levels throughout the summer.
NEXT REGULAR BOARD MEETING TBA
The public is welcome to attend all regular board meetings but if you wish to address the board, please consult the Meeting Procedures Bylaw for the proper protocol. Email the secretary at email@example.com for further information.
GREAT CANADIAN SHORELINE CLEANUP SEPT 22 2019
Thank you to everyone who attended the Great Canadian Shoreline Cleanup at Wasa Lake on Sunday, September 22. There was a record turnout! Although the usual trash can still be found on the shoreline every year, generally we are finding that after 4 years of annual cleanup, the amount is declining. The most common items found are food wrappers, cigarette butts, and plastic bits. We are, however, finding an increase of Styrofoam fragments that are breaking off of aging docks and washing up on shore. If you are a dock-owner, please inspect your dock and repair or replace it if it is deteriorating.
We would like to acknowledge the support of BC Parks for providing after-cleanup pizza for all the participants. All in all, it was a great sunny afternoon for a walk on the beach!
This event is one of the Great Canadian Shoreline Cleanup activities across the nation and is registered at www.shorelinecleanup.ca All cleanup data will be submitted to the national website in order to track trends across Canada.
