Ministry of Environment, Conservation and Parks
Moira Lake Water Quality Report

The MECP has now released their study on the quality of the water in Moira Lake.  At the request of the MLPOA (triggered by concerns over Blue-Green Algae blooms in the lake) the Minstry conducted an extensive review of the quality of the water in the lake. Attached here is a summary of their conclusions and recommendations.  We encourage all interested parties to read the document and contact the association if you have any comments or concerns.  The MLPOA Executive will be reviewing the report and determining appropriate next steps over the following months.

Spring is Finally Here! 


The MLPOA would like to remind all of Moira Lakers that spring can be a time of high water and potential flooding. In years past,  residents have had boats and docks gone missing, so make sure that your shoreline is secure

Water Quality Testing

At last years AGM lake water Algae concerns were raised. Our Meetings with Quinte Conservation & MOE have resulted in this exciting news.  The MOECC (Ministry of the Environment and Climate Change) confirmed that they have approval to do some additional water quality and related sampling on Moira Lake starting this year.  The sampling will consist of four sampling events, starting in May and running through to October.  They will be focusing their sampling at four locations on the lake and five of the main tributaries based on mapping provided by the MLPOA & QC.  Also, a one-time sediment survey at the four lake stations will be completed.  The sampling will be analyzed for general chemistry (nutrients), water clarity, arsenic, dissolved oxygen and temperature.  This is really great news for the lake and our residents/recreational users.
