The algal blooms produce toxins and suck the oxygen from the water, creating “dead zones” where nothing can live. Phosphorus runoff from farms is considered the leading culprit, while sewage-treatment plants and septic tanks are sources of the pollution as well. Climate change is likely to promote algae blooms as well by boosting water temperatures and causing severe storms that wash huge volumes of nutrients into the lake.

City Hauls in Over a Tonne of Invasive Goldfish - Goldfish are an invasive species in Alberta that can outcompete native fish if released into the wild. They’ve been in the isolated Lacombe Lake Park for decades, but were only spotted in Edgewater in 2015 and in Ted Hole last spring. That sparked concern, as those ponds had a sewer link to the Sturgeon River. The city broke out the pesticides on the advice of Alberta Environment after nets, electricity and winter’s icy grasp failed to eliminate the invaders.
