Troubled Waters

Threats to the Sturgeon River Watershed and Big Lake


This website takes you through a meandering path of reports by various people, from professional experts and academics to local residents who care and are trying to use the legal process to save a river system from the impacts of progress: oil/gas/gravel industry, golf courses, urban sprawl encroaching into the floodplains of the Sturgeon River and its lake system, in brief, the general degradation leading to the slow but certain death of a river and its ecosystem.

Hope for the Sturgeon?
