Protect Our Lake

Protect Our Lake

Pigeon Lake is a valuable resource - from habitat for wildlife, a source of water, enjoyment of recreational activities such as swimming, or boating, Pigeon Lake supports many people and animals. Our lake is a limited resource and proper care needs to be taken to protect this lake, not only for our generation, but for all of our children.

Here we will explain how you can help to protect the lake: understand what blue-green algae is and how to limit the nutrients that feed the growth of the algae, how to minimize development impact with proper shoreline development, as well as many resources for further information.

The APLM and Pigeon Lake Watershed Association are working together for the health of the lake.

The Alliance of Pigeon Lake Municipalities (APLM) is a group of Elected Officials in the Pigeon Lake region whose members are from the 10 Pigeon Lake Summer Villages, County of Wetaskiwin No. 10 and Leduc County. They meet quarterly to share information and work on projects for the benefit of residents and visitors to Pigeon Lake.

Live Monitoring of Pigeon Lake

This buoy is a high tech addition to Pigeon Lake.  The Summer Village of Crystal Springs with the Summer Village of Itaska Beach and other Pigeon Lake Summer Villages, purchased the monitoring buoy with a provincial grant to help gather more information about Pigeon Lake. It monitors changes in water quality and temperature to give scientists the most thorough and up to date information.

The live data from the monitoring buoy can be viewed on this link.

The Alberta Government has put together a fact sheet on the purpose of the buoy.
