The lagoon discharge application has now been submitted to Alberta Environment Parks & Climate Change for approval - the attached operational plan on page 20 shows the discharge plan - residents on Lakeshore Drive please note the exact distribution - All residents and visitors caution - if the discharge is approved this area is off limits regardless mode of movement.  

Vegetation has been unaffected by earlier discharges and gypsum will be added to lagoon cells to reduce/break down the solid saline content in the cells in the hope of reducing SAR (saline content) and reducing the levels of the lagoon.  Alberta Environment has given written (see March 11 update above) permission to apply the gypsum PRIOR to the approval of the discharge application expressing hope that the gypsum application will be successful.
