Recently 2 public meetings were held at Loreburn and Elbow with presentations and discussions on how to protect Lake Diefenbaker from aquatic invasive mussels (AIM). These meetings were very well attended, as local communities consider how best to prevent the introduction of these mussels. As a result of these meetings a Lake Diefenbaker Task Force has been put together and has been busy putting together a plan. To date, there has been a press release indicating a plan of action that calls for inspections at major boat launches, on-site decontamination, and a citizen’s patrol.
