Description During 1994, Ecology monitored copper levels in Sylvia Lake and its outlet stream before and after treatment with copper sulfate. Sylvia Lake has historically been treated with copper compounds in order to control nuisance algal growth. The outlet stream is used to hatch and rear at least two species of salmon. Objectives of the Sylvia Lake survey were to: 1) Determine persistence of copper in the water column following treatment by a licensed applicator; 2) Determine concentrations of copper downstream following treatment; and 3) Measure copper concentrations in the lake sediments.
