CORRECTION – Swan Lake “Threatened” Not “Impaired”

In the Seeley Swan Pathfinder’s Feb. 2 ‘A Place for All’ column titled “Water Quality in the Swan Valley – It Takes Work,” it stated that Swan Lake was listed as an “impaired water body.” That is incorrect.

Goat and Jim Creeks are impaired waterbodies; however, Swan Lake is listed as “threatened” because of the very low dissolved oxygen levels in the deep parts of the lake in the summertime.
