Here are the Water Quality testing results for the Summer of 2015, done in partnership with the

University of Waterloo and KWEF volunteers.  KWEF would like to thank all those involved with the project; including Colin Yates and the participants from the Summit Centre University campus, KWEF volunteers and the Town of Kearney. 

Again this year, two teams of students from the University sampled our lakes.   We are currently building a baseline of data so that we can react quickly should there be any detrimental signs in our watershed.  This is especially important given the vulnerability of our water quality due to the thin overlay of porous soil present in the surrounding area of many of our lakes.  So far we are pleased to report that no major concerns have been observed.  However 2 years’ data does not give a good picture.   Continued monitoring over a number of years is needed to give us entry level data and a clear idea of trends affecting the health of our watershed. 

Some things residents can do to help are:
