“The revised and more scientifically defensible TMDLs are evidence that the efforts of LESJWA have made, and continue to make, reflect a positive impact to the watershed,” shared Mark Norton, LESJWA administrator. “We achieved what we set out to accomplish but know that there is more work to follow to adapt to continued drought cycle challenges. LESJWA and the TMDL Task Force have had to seek creative solutions to a complex situation.”
As a member of our watershed, the Lake Elsinore & San Jacinto Watersheds Authority (LESJWA) invites you to the 2018 LESJWA Water Summit. Our watershed faces unique challenges that require action and agency collaboration to seek solutions for watershed management. The Summit will feature information on how the TMDL Task Force has worked with the Santa Ana Regional Water Quality Control Board to implement watershed monitoring, mitigation projects, modeling and a variety of other solutions to meet TMDL targets.

Canyon Lake Alum Treatments Prove Successful in Managing Water Quality – Recent study reports results from lake study on alum applications
Residents of Canyon Lake recently witnessed the sixth application of alum to the main body, coves, and north causeway of the lake. With the support of the Lake Elsinore and Canyon Lake Total Maximum Daily Load (TMDL) Task Force that is seeking to significantly improve water quality and ecology in Canyon Lake, the applications have proven successful in minimizing algae growth.
On Wednesday, April 27, 2016, the LESJWA Water Summit took place. Presentations were shown to detail how the current drought is impacting our region, what LESJWA is doing to further protect the local watersheds, the accomplishments made, and upcoming major projects to help reach water quality goals.
