LAKE INFORMATION

Lake Level and Sturgeon River Weir
Please be advised your administration has received concerns from both Lac Ste. Anne County and Alberta Environment with respect to the lake levels and specifically the weir at the mouth of the Sturgeon River. According to Alberta Environment records, the lake has dropped nine inches at the boat launch.  Apparently residents around the lake, and in particular from Yellowstone and Ross Haven are excessively calling Lac Ste. Anne County and Alberta Environment on this matter, and citing incorrect information.  And some people are going one step further and are actually going to the weir and trying to make alterations or placing obstructions to try and alter the water flow. The general public can not do this, and those individuals are trespassing on private property and the County has advised that if caught they will be charged.

In the spring the municipalities on the south east shores of Lac Ste. Anne expressed their concern that the lake level was too high and was negatively affecting them, and now there are residents on the north concerned that the lake is too low and negatively affecting them. The County and Alberta Environment must take into consideration all concerns.

Please be respective of those entities that do in fact have care and control of this weir.
