You can use your in-house treated lake water to do dishes, laundry and to shower, providing there's no odour or discolouration. But do NOT ingest it in any way, including teeth brushing, ice cubes, etc. See the important notice from Mrs. Agnès Grondin, Biologist and Environmental Advisor at the MRC of Argenteuil which follows.
The results are available in French only.
Your stalwart group of volunteers have done yeoman service yet again - Roger Elliott and Bonnie Seale at Site A, John Perkins at Site B, Debbie and Randy Sinclair at Site C and Dany Miron and Jack Davis at all three sites as chemical testing was being completed. Here are the results of their efforts. Please note that, once again this year, we have exceeded the RSVL requirement for minimum number of tests. Note also that, unless we get a different direction from RSVL, we have completed our chemical testing series and will not be expecting to do that again for at least three years. The transparency testing continues every year.
Perhaps we can use the break to begin/complete other projects that have been left pending. Namely, shoreline mapping and periphyton observation. Additional volunteer support would be welcome to complete these daunting tasks.

This presentation focuses on the threats which the aquatic plant named Eurasian Milfoil present to Lake Louisa.
Eurasian Milfoil is an invasive species which will come to Lake Louisa if we do not take preventative measures.
The LLPOA hopes that all Lake Louisa residents from both Wentworth & Wentworth North watch this video.
