During the spring of 1985, the Fulford Harbour Waterworks District experienced many difficulties with supplying water to customers because of large amounts of algae in the water being drawn from Weston Lake. The algae caused difficulty in maintaining chlorination and resulted in a variety of customer complaints. The lake itself was reported to be very turbid and the intake was difficult to service because of the low visibility for the SCUBA diver. Water treatment consists only of a chlorination unit. No filtration or settling is carried out. The Regional Director requested that the Water Management Branch's Resource Quality Section review the data that were available and determine if some change could be made to improve the situation.
