A: What about people who don’t dive or fish, but still enjoy our beautiful lakes and rivers here in the Fraser Valley, how can they protect these waterways?
C: The number one thing I would say is just don’t throw stuff in the water. Pretty easy. I’ve seen it all the time where people have picnics on the side of the dock or the water’s edge and the wind comes and blows their empty containers in the water. So, just be a little more thoughtful about your empty trash and where it’s going. Obviously don’t leave it around. If you’re walking around and happen to see garbage near the water’s edge, just take it with you and throw it in the nearest garbage van. At Cultus Lake, there’s really no excuse. I would bet there is a garbage can at least every 100 meters around the perimeter of the whole lake for the most part. Anywhere public that has a beach, there are garbage cans nearby, so there’s really no excuse not to either help pick up garbage or not throw garbage in the water.
