Water Quality & Management Of Musselman’s Lake Report Has Positive Findings
The Geranium Corporation sponsored Lake environmental report has been completed by Dr. Neil Hutchinson of Hutchinson Environmental Sciences Ltd., and the findings are very positive which means that the residents of Musselman’s Lake have been doing a great job of managing the Lake.
Since its inception back in 2006, the MLRA had noticed positive environmental indicators such as the return of frogs and turtles to the Lake in numbers. This led the MLRA to implement projects such as The CUPPEL (Controlling Unwanted Phosphorous and Pollution Entering Lake) Project. Until a full comprehensive study could be funded and completed, a weed harvest or other even more drastic measures to reduce the amount of weeds on the Lake were shelved.
We now have that report and it supports the position of non-intervention.
