Moose Lake Initiative
Proposed Moose Lake Remediation Project
We’re proposing an alum application in Moose Lake Alberta as a pilot project to fix the persistent harmful algal blooms. We’ve embarked on a public process of reaching out to residents, local stakeholders and government to share the proposal details and confirm support.

On January 12, Ray Menard and Dr. John Holz presented our proposed pilot project for an alum application in Moose Lake to the Reeve and Council of the MD of Bonnyville. The project goal remains the same: to solve harmful recurring algal blooms in Moose Lake. We asked that they write a letter supporting our request to have the provincial government fund the Moose Lake Restoration Pilot. The Council accepted our presentation as information and will make a decision about writing a letter of support at a future meeting.
If you would like to support the proposed pilot project, please let your councillor know. Or, email us! We’re deeply interested in what you have to say. It was a 2018 community petition with 1800 signatures to fix Moose Lake algal blooms that started this process.
