The Lake Elsinore and San Jacinto Watershed Authority (LESJWA) was formed to improve water quality in Lake Elsinore and Canyon Lake. This organization is made up of stakeholders from around the watershed who are implementing programs such as the alum treatments to Canyon Lake. Many of these programs are grant funded and are a result of numerous lake studies.
In a balanced ecosystem, most algae are necessary to keep a body of water healthy and productive. However, excessive algae growth reduces water clarity, releases a strong odor, and suffocates aquatic life forms by depleting oxygen levels and blocking sunlight.
Refrain from going into water that is foamy, scummy, pea-green, blue-green, brownish red, or looks like floating paint.
In some situations, where lake waters are particularly stagnant and shallow as evident around lake coves, algae growth may still occur despite repeated alum treatment. Usually the algae mats in the coves will dissipate over time and drop away within 2-3 weeks.
Yes, together we can all help reduce nutrient inputs to the lake by picking up after our animals, reducing runoff from our irrigation, reducing fertilizer use, and avoid littering in our streets. All of these practices reduce the amount of pollutants that end up in Canyon Lake, which can lead to algae growth.
Canyon Lake is a drinking water reservoir that EVMWD seasonally utilizes to offset costly imported water. After proper treatment, algae does not have any negative health impacts, but can add an earthy taste to drinking water.
In recent years, algae testing has been conducted at Canyon Lake by the Southern California Coastal Water Research Project (SCCWRP) and LESJWA. These tests are not required by State or Federal law and are used for research purposes to help improve water quality.
Between August, 2011 and March, 2017, the Canyon Lake POA spent $1,066,931.93 on legal fees related to the Lake Lease, which includes negotiations and preparing and filing litigation.
Some of the litigation is over, but not all of it. Specifically, the "Tax Case" (Riverside Superior Court Case Number RIC 1504034) and (Court of Appeal Case Number CIV Number E065705) which was on appeal, has been dismissed. However, the "Declaratory Relief Case" (Riverside Superior Court Case Number 1503428) is still pending. The reason why the Declaratory Relief Case is still pending is that there are a few important issues that must be resolved, which were not the subject of the 5th Amendment. Specifically, there appears to be some incongruity as to where the border of the Lake, and shore zone, actually lies, and the parties want a definitive determination as to where that important boundary is.
The parties also want to come to create a uniform process for future encroachments into the Lake and onto the shore zone, which involves all the necessary stakeholders, i.e. CLPOA, EVMWD, and CLPOA's members. There needs to be a standardized process so everything is as consistent, fair, and predictable as possible.
RFID is an acronym for Radio Frequency Identification Device. The RFID transponder is the physical tag applied to the vehicle or golf cart which triggers the gate to open.
At each gate there is an RFID panel which is programmed to read the RFID transponder. When the panel reads a valid RFID transponder it will automatically open the gate arm.
Please note, vehicles in the RFID lane without a transponder can cause the lanes to back up, as they have to communicate with the attendants, and then be turned around and re-enter through the guest lane. One or more of these instances which can take several minutes, can magnify backups at busy times.
RFID transponders are for Canyon Lake POA members only. To receive an RFID transponder, members must bring the current vehicle registration and the actual vehicle to the Canyon Lake POA's Member Services office. For information on registration requirements, please contact the Member Services department at 951.244.6841 x310.
