On July 4, 2011 the Province of Manitoba and the Government of Canada released the State of Lake Winnipeg report. The report, led by Manitoba Water Stewardship and Environment Canada, is a collaborative effort by many researchers from government, universities, and non-governmental organizations and is the first comprehensive assessment of the physical, chemical, and biological characteristics of Lake Winnipeg since intensive lake monitoring began in late 1990s.
The State of Lake Winnipeg report serves as a reference to measure progress towards reducing nutrient loading, will help in the assessment of the overall health of the lake, and also provides key information to support current and future research on Lake Winnipeg. The report is available as both an extended technical report and a highlights report.
