Conserving The Fish Of Muir

Recommended Posts

With all this hot weather and no rain , would the county be thinking of installing the aerators in Muir . Would any one know????

Dan, the ACA installs and runs the aerators at Muir and FESA pays the electric bill with financial help from the County. The budget is very limited. Believe the short answer is 'No.' Think the science suggests that running the aerators in the heat would have little if any impact on water temperature and oxygen levels, and may contribute to even more evaporation. Have, however, passed on the concern to ACA although I have no idea what they can do about it. Lots of concern in southern Alberta too about critically high water temperatures and low water levels in many lakes and streams.
