SPECIAL NOTE:  References to the water sampling programme with the Muskoka Lakes Association (MLA) do not apply for this Summer 2020 season while we are in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic.


The Bass Lake Association is active with respect to monitoring the quality of our lake.  We currently have six test sites that provide a good snapshot of water conditions.





Our lake specific data is analyzed by the Muskoka Lakes Association (MLA) and a full report is made available to all lakes, and their communities, each spring (following the sampling season). 

The final report compares phosphorous levels in Bass Lake to other participating lakes in the Muskoka watershed and the results will be made available to all association members in the annual spring report.


Additional compethensive information and reporting about Water Quality and maintaining Water Quality is on its way very very soon... Stay tuned.
