Brian Ginn, Liminologist, with The Lake Simcoe Region Conservation Authority has been in contact with MLRA President, Rick Wigmore to inform us the lab results are in from water samples taken back in May. Musselman’s Lake’s water chemistry test came back ” normal”. Our beautiful Musselman’s Lake continues to shine even under the microscope of extensive studies and testing.

As part of the LSRCA continued study of Musselman’s Lake they were back on the Lake this week and took additional water samples to  help us further understand the complexities of the seasonal changes our Lake goes through. Brian Ginn will update us once he has these samples back from the lab.

Investigation Proves Algae Harmless

On May 5th Brian Ginn, Liminologist, with The Lake Simcoe Region Conservation Authority asked Rick Wigmore, President of the MLRA, to arrange Lake access  for the LSRCA. The LSRCA were planning to take some “spring overturn” water samples to build on the testing performed for the Water Quality & Management Of Musselman’s Lake Report.

While speaking with Brian, Rick asked him to look into our spring algae problem that some residents were enquiring about. On May 6th the LSRCA launched their boat. They took water samples and investigated the visible algae to see if we had any reason for concern.

We are grateful that Mr. Ginn took the time to investigate and here is his response to Mr. Wigmore.LSRCA letter regarding Algae 0507141 (1)
