Lake Watch Readings

Muriel Lake volunteers (Jeff Hlewka and Richard Bourgeois) accompanied ALMS Technician, Caleb Sinn, with the first set of 10 reading for our lake watch report. More readings will be taken throughout the summer and the final report will be released in the new year.


Lake Level is up!

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.

Muriel Lake Basin Aerial- 2015

We are currently working to address the declining water level in Muriel Lake.  This is the 2015 aerial view of the lake.

I came across this neat function of Google Maps today…. It's a timelapse that shows just how drastic the landscape has changed in the past 30-some years. It's too bad that we don't have the last 3 years to view as well, but interesting (and sad) nonetheless.

Here's a quick video from the south side (elk road) of the lake and surrounding area. It's chilling seeing it from this perspective.

Our Goal

The Muriel Lake Basin Management Society is a registered “Not for Profit” Charitable organization. Our goal as a committee is to have an “Arm’s Length Study” conducted to find reasons for the drastic and continuing decline of Muriel Lake. The MLBMS would like to restore the lake water levels and make it a usable water resource for all Albertan’s, with the assistance of government, industrial and private agencies.
