High winds on July 23 stirred up the lake. A turbid plume was distinctly visible this week on the east side of the lake, south of Windermere. Turbidity readings were much lower this week than last week after the Fairmont landslide. Results this week showed relative consistency in water quality conditions from the north to south end of the lake. Our volunteer of the week Doug Yukes of Invermere says: “The turbidity colours were interesting to observe and a coyote taunting some dogs on the south end of the lake provided great shoreline entertainment.”
