Sturgeon Bay

Stakeholder consultations identified water quality as the top issue for Sturgeon Bay, a Bay located along the east shore of Georgian Bay at Pointe au Baril. The Bay’s water quality has been progressively deteriorating. Massive algal blooms are occurring. Phosphorous concentrations up to 34 ug/L have been measured and water clarity has been reduced to about 0.6 m in the worst areas. Dr. Bradford lead the development of a Bay Plan which identified land use planning measures, private stewardship actions, and in-lake restoration measures.
