Spring is finally here and it seems like it is a good spring for Muriel Lake! Spring runoff has been strong, and the lake level is up. Last week the level (as measured by the government monitor near Gurneyville) reached 556.0 meters above sea level. The lake hasn’t been at this level since 2008! It isn’t up much, but its not down. Hopefully the trend continues.
We had a few brave gentlemen brave the lake in the middle of December to test for dissolved oxygen. There was 10 inches of ice on Muriel Lake and we were able to access the same spot that was used by AEP last year via ATV’s on top of the ice.
