Title: Final report and recommendations of the Steering Committee
Author: Crabtree, P.; Salbach, S.; Jackson, G.; Lammers, W.; Latornell, A.; Richardson, G.; Rudik, V.
Abstract: The Lake Simcoe-Couchiching Basin Environmental Strategy study as well as earlier research and monitoring work have indicated that Lake Simcoe is receiving an excessive supply of phosphorus, causing over-abundant growths of algae. This disrupts the Lake's ecosystem, results in critically low dissolved oxygen levels in the deeper Lake waters and is causing a decline in the populations of desirable cold-water fish species. In response to ongoing concerns with the Lake water quality and recommendations for further research, the Cabinet Committee for Resources Development initiated the Lake Simcoe Environmental Management Strategy (LSEMS) studies, designating the Ontario Ministry of the Environment as lead agency (CCRD, 1979).
