APEL des Trois Montagnes

Efforts made over the last few years (regulation of boat washing and replanting shores, controlling the access, controlling septic systems, testing and tracking water quality, yearly stocking of thousands of fish) have ensured a high level of quality and clarity of lake water. Over the last five years, average water transparency is stable, chlorophyll and phosphorus concentrations are declining and the concentration of dissolved organic carbon is acceptable.


The existence of a snowpack keeps temperatures lower than they would be otherwise, as the whiteness of the snow reflects most sunlight, and any absorbed heat goes into melting the snow rather than increasing its temperature. The water equivalent of snowfall is measured to monitor how much liquid is available to flood rivers from meltwater that will occur during the following spring.
