Water quality monitoring

March 2016 – During 2016, the Heritage Foundation will once again support the program of water quality monitoring conducted by Kawartha Lake Stewards Association in Clear, Stony and Upper Stoney Lakes. Lake water samples are collected by volunteers acting under carefully designed protocols.   Samples are tested by commercial laboratories for the presence of e.coli and phosphorous.  The Foundation pays for the cost of testing water samples, and also contributes to the cost of publishing the results.
