EDMONTON - The water quality of a popular central Alberta lake is being reviewed as part of a bid for new development on its shore.
The Environmental Appeals Board is meeting today to look at a proposal that would add 1,100 units at Gull Lake.
The president of the Gull Lake Water Quality Management Society says it's the largest development ever proposed for the area.
Craig McLeod says the project would be about the same size as the last three developments combined.
He says the lake has had relatively few problems with blue-green algae.
But he adds more research is necessary to ensure that quality can be maintained in light of more development.
