Algal blooms were reported in Slocan Lake in 2009. This year we observed one in Wilson Creek. It was located on the south side of the creek at the mouth and ran upstream over 200 yards. More data is being gathered and will be reported here as it becomes available. This Research Centre has been recording hourly temperatures in Wilson Creek since May 2009. The data will be posted on this website.
By reporting the occurence and location of these algal growths we can assemble data that will establish whether or not the blooms are increasing. We will also be giving more data on the types of algae and what to watch for as we learn more about it.
