A major increase in the turbidity was observed at the Lake Windermere Ambassadors’ water quality monitoring site on the south end of the lake on July 17. The significant increase in turbidity is most likely due to the landslide in Fairmont Hotsprings on Sunday, July 15. Heather Fischbuch of Invermere joined the Lake Windermere Ambassadors for this week’s sampling and not only was very helpful, but she also had fun. She stated: “I enjoyed participating in the lake monitoring and learned more about our lovely Lake Windermere. Thanks for including me on such a great sunny morning.”
