Friends of Vancouver Lake to hold free workshop Thursday at Leverich Park

Open house event open from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Thursday

Friends of Vancouver Lake will be holding a workshop Thursday at Leverich Park in an effort to inform the public on how the organization is trying to improve the lake. 

Friends of Vancouver Lake want to inform the public on the efforts to improve the quality of the lake with a workshop detailing a new filtration system to stop phosphorus at Burnt Bridge Creek.

Specifically, this workshop will explain how experts are trying to stop or slow down the occurrence of excess nutrients such as phosphorus, which supports harmful and toxic algae.

Water quality assessments have shown that Burnt Bridge Creek, which runs through Leverich Park on its way to the lake, is a significant source of phosphorus.

Friends of Vancouver Lake, along with partners Aquatechnex and EutroPHIX, will be holding the workshop, showcasing a new filtration system called EutroSORB. The goal is to use the system to intercept phosphorus prior to it getting into the lake.

The workshop is an open-house style so guests are welcome to arrive at their convenience between 9 a.m. and 6 p.m. There will be multiple demonstrations each hour.

    Great to hear this. Vanc Lake has been ignored for too long & is such an amazing recreational jewel to all of clark county & beyond. Thanks to Larry Cassidy & several others of the Friends of VL to take proactive initiative. Now the county & city & port need to help by stepping up with resources.
