Welcome to Lac La Nonne Enhancement AND Protection Association
Working together for the health of the lake and surrounding area
Introduction to LEPA
Since the early 1900’s we, our children and now their children have grown up coming out and enjoying Lac La Nonne. Our membership is a diverse community of people: cottagers, campers, businesses, residents and visitors. We all come to enjoy the beauty and amenities here at “our little paradise”. Over the last 25 years LEPA have been working to address the health of the lake and to celebrate our community accomplishments. As volunteers, passion is our main asset, our one of are rewards is seeing our community get together for a lakeshore information walk or potluck supper; attending our workshops and fundraisers; or commenting on our newsletter. We striving to conserve our natural areas, the lake and our way of life.
PH LEVELS IN LAKES
Why is pH important?
Most aquatic organisms can only survive within a certain pH range. Generally, the more neutral the pH, the greater the number and variety of organisms that can survive. Water with a pH of 6.5 to 8.5 is suitable for most aquatic organisms. If pH moves either higher or lower, the number of individuals and the number of species will decline Water quality is greatly affected by pH. solubilized (mobilized) and available for uptake
The Lac La Nonne Enhancement and Protection Association and the Waters Edge Resources Group (WERG) have created a unique information and guidebook for residents, recreational users and visitors on Lac La Nonne.

"Lac la Nonne is a lake in central Alberta, Canada. It is located between Lac Ste. Anne County and the County of Barrhead No. 11, 85 km north-west from Edmonton, east of the Grizzly Trail. The lake is located within the Athabasca River basin and is fed by Majeau Creek, with water levels controlled by a dam, on the outflowing MacDonald Creek which then flows into the Pembina River.”
