Lake Windermere Management Plan

The Lake Windermere Management Plan was initiated by the Regional District of East Kootenay (RDEK) in November 2008 to address concerns that increasing development and use could lead to a degradation in drinking water quality and other values.

The Plan guides long-term management of the lake and directs local government planning for the lake and shoreline.

It considers and integrates the environmental, anthropogenic, cultural, and biological factors and values associated with Lake Windermere.

The Lake Windermere Ambassadors, a group of citizens representing a broad sector of the community, provide the RDEK and the District of Invermere with advice and guidance on plan implementation.
