Quality Water level in closed lakes (i.e. those without a surface outlet) of the Vestfold Hills has varied markedly over the last thirty years. For example, the surface level of Ace Lake rose by about 2 metres between 1974 and 1994. Measurement of changes in the water level in most of the closed lakes is confounded by the presence of ice for approximately 11 months of the year. Retrieving actual water ... View entire text
