    Good morning,

    FYI, our test came back from our lagoon and we are able to discharge.  We will begin that process today.   The pump runs 24/7 for about 5 days then we flow the sewage over.    The smell usually increases during this time and could be increased over the next two weeks intermittently.

    Thanks, Linda

    Re: Municipal Payments

    Multi-Material Stewardship Manitoba Inc. (MMSM) received notice from the Manitoba Government, that they are terminating the January 2011 Newspaper Recycling Agreement with the newspaper stewards in the province. 

    This agreement had the Manitoba Government remitting newsprint fees to MMSM on behalf of newspaper stewards. The change is effective August 7, 2017.

    Under the Waste Reduction and Prevention Act (WRAP) and Packaging and Printed Paper Regulation, newspaper stewards are the obligated steward. Newspapers are challenging the termination and have advised MMSM they will not pay for 2017 newsprint fees.

    This places MMSM in the middle of a dispute regarding who will pay for newsprint recycling. The lack of funding for newsprint means MMSM will not have funds to pay municipalities until the issue is resolved. 

    Based on the anticipated non-payment of newsprint fees, Paint Lake-Sustainable Development will receive $60.06 less per quarter, which is a reduction of about 2% from the first two 2017 quarterly payments.

    We understand this is short notice and may create challenges for municipal programs, but unfortunately,

    MMSM has no other alternatives given the recent decisions by the Government of Manitoba and newspaper stewards.

    We are hoping for a prompt resolution to this matter. Should you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact me at (204) 953-2011 or by email at kmelnychuk@stewardshipmanitoba.org.

    Regards,

    Just want to let you know that there has been some theft and vandalism going on at the campground.   Also heard from a cottager today that they had something stolen from their vehicle.

     Not sure if you can post on your web site and ask all people to be diligent at locking up valuables and reporting theft to the RCMP.

     

    Thanks,

    The Paint Lake Volunteer Fire Department would like to extend their gratitude for the community support by way of food and drinks made available to everyone in the Community Hall while dealing with the unfortunate crisis on January 21st. It was greatly appreciated to see everyone pull together for this tragedy. 

    The Paint Lake Cottage Owners Association would also like to thank the fire department and community members that really came together to help the Silva family.  I'm sure the PLCOA is not alone in wanting to thank these dedicated and courageous community members. 

    Are thoughts are with the Silva Family as they deal with recovering from this tragic house fire and if anyone would like to help them out with a monetary donation they can do so on the main paint lake community webpage. Just click on the donation link and specify what the donate is for in the comments.  They can also make a cash donation by getting in contact with Kim Rudolph at 204-679-4493.

    FYI on helping enhance the quality of lakes

    Hey there,

    My name is Jayare Charron, from Riverdale Water Management in Carman, Manitoba. We focus on the management of water, including natural and pro-active solutions for Algae reduction, muck (organic decay), water clarity and much more!

    As it is the spring season, temperatures are on the rise, providing new life to your lawn, trees and the other beautiful vegetation that overlooks our lakeshores and riversides. However, this also accelerates the growth of algae in your bay, lakefront, or just off the dock where you fish and swim. The same can be said for that “dark, slimy, gooey mud” that your toes sink into upon wading out into the water. This is simply organic decay caused by the breakdown of leaves, branches, and other matter which has made its way into your water. We call this “muck”, and it creates the perfect breeding ground for underwater vegetation and, dare I say it, leeches.

    So, how do you solve these problems? The answer actually lies within nature itself. It just needs to be harnessed.

    Dissolved Oxygen is essential to life beneath the surface of your water body, just as oxygen is essential to you and I. By installing fine bubble aeration, you are essentially adding dissolved oxygen as well as mixing your water from top to bottom, increasing oxygen levels, as well as creating even temperature distribution throughout the water, and allowing naturally occurring aerobic bacteria to thrive. Aerobic bacteria work quickly to digest suspended organics, algae, as well as organic decay (muck), without leaving toxic residuals behind. Riverdale Water Management supplies Airmax products, known for their extremely sufficient “fine bubble” aeration, as well as having the most energy efficient compressors the market has to offer.

    Love Fishing? Our fine-bubble aeration systems are great for fish health and enhancement!

    Naturally Occurring Bacteria, as mentioned above, quickly digest algae, plant matter, organic decay and nutrients in the water, which are known to cause massive algal blooms, just like the ones occurring in Lake Winnipeg. Our products include “MuckAway” (a pelleted form of bacteria with the capability of eliminating 6-12 inches per season), “PondClear” (colonizing bacteria which work to remove suspended organics causing water clarity issues in closed bodies of water such as ponds), as well as “EcoBoost”, (a natural bacteria enhancer designed to remarkably speed reproductive rates of colonizing aerobic bacteria such as that found in MuckAway and PondClear).

    We aim for proactive solutions using natural bacteria and enzymes to create a sustainable, clean and ecologically efficient system which will increase fish health, aquatic life, cosmetics and of course, the overall quality of your water front, bay, pond or other body of water.

    We also provide fountains and landscape lighting, as well as many other natural bacteria-based products to suit many particular needs.

    If you have any questions or concerns regarding your lake, pond, dugout or any other body of water, please do not hesitate to call or email us. We would be happy to assist you.

    Cheers,

    Jayare Charron

    A huge thank you goes out to everyone who bought tickets to the 3rd Annual Paint Lake Community Fishing Derby. Of course it couldn't have been a success without the help of the Paint Lake Volunteer Firefighters and Paint Lake Cottage Owner's Association and their wives. As well as the 2 NRO's and Parks staff from Manitoba Conservation and everyone who donated prizes.

    And the winners were......

    1st place - Ray Tizzard - 46cm Pike - $734.25
    2nd place - Bruce Best - 45.6cm Pike - $373.80
    3rd place - Krista Menard - 45cm Pike - $226.95

    Mike Sitko pulled the winning ticket for the 50/50 draw and the winner was Jodi Pajic $164.00 .

    51 holes were sold with a total of $1500 dollars raised from this event.

    There were also numerous door prizes awarded throughout the afternoon.
