City staff take samples of the lake water each week and send them for testing to Alberta Health Services. Testing is done at the Cove Beach, Sunset Park, John Peake Park and multiple samples are taken at Anniversary Park (due to its popularity). 2016 samples showed good results. If water quality concerns are found, the City will notify the public. For more information, visit www.albertahealthservices.ca.
Lake Lowering & Rising
The lake water is raised in the early spring (usually mid to late April) and is lowered shortly after the Thanksgiving holiday. If you have any questions about the lake water levels, please contact the Western Irrigation District (WID) at (403) 934-3542.
