Welcome to the Village of Spring Lake
from the Environmental Advisory Committee (EAC)
On behalf of the Spring Lake Environmental Advisory Committee (EAC), we want to tell you about ourselves. We are a volunteer committee that holds environmental issues close to our hearts. As a committee, our role is to advise the Village of Spring Lake Council on environmental issues and provide a forum for the Village residents to express environmental concerns that may impact our natural status.
Since 2005, the EAC has advised Council in several areas such as through feedback from the community via surveys and through the development of an Environmental Action Plan that is a living document and is presented to council on an annual basis for acceptance, and implementation where feasible and affordable. We also initiate and support a variety of pursuits and educational opportunities such as the posting of prohibited and noxious weeds, handing out tree seedling kits to the community, sponsoring the annual rain barrel sale in partnership with the City of Spruce Grove, the Town of Stony Plain and the County of Parkland, shoreline cleanups, we participate in Pitch In Canada, and present educational workshops on topics such as composting, septic systems, and healthy wells as examples. We developed and support the Community Photo Boards which have been showcasing our community through the eyes of our residents since 2015.
Our members track a variety information such as annual freeze/thaw dates of the lake, lake water levels, loon chick hatching and survival rates and in partnership with the Alberta Conservation Association, the oxygen levels of the lake and the putting in and taking out of the aerators each year.
Should you have any environmental questions or concerns, contact the EAC through email at email@example.com, leave your name and phone number or email address and an EAC member will contact you. We will do our best to provide you with the information you request or to help address any concerns you may have as new member of our community.
