Goleta City Council Approves Measure to Aid Mother Nature
The warm, oxygen-depleted water in Lake Los Carneros puts local wildlife at risk and the Goleta City Council has voted to add water on a temporary basis.

Without a creek that runs into it, the lake relies on surface runoff and upward percolation from the groundwater below, but California’s severe drought has resulted in low lake levels, public works director Rosemarie Gaglione said.

That and the debris in the lake, which uses up oxygen, endangers fish and other wildlife. Migratory birds, which visit twice a year, could stop coming, Gaglione said.

Council members approved adding a temporary construction meter so the city can add water to the lake. Gaglione proposed adding 500,000 gallons at a time — which should raise the water level about a foot — and monitoring the progress.

The city can’t use reclaimed water but could start trucking in recycled water to use on medians, which would help offset the use of potable water in the lake.

Little Lake Sees Big Developments with Honeoye Research - New research on Honeoye Lake could crack the code for what ails that lake and waterways everywhere: Harmful blue-green algae. The project involving citizens, students and scientists has this summer uncovered new clues to what spawns and fuels those nasty algae blooms that plague Honeoye and other lakes.
