'''Kootenay Lake''' is a [[lake]] located in [[British Columbia]], [[Canada]] and is part of the
[[Kootenay River]]. The lake has been raised by the [[Corra Linn Dam]] and has a dike system at the southern end, which, along with industry in the 1950s-70s, has changed the ecosystem in and around the water. Kootenay Lake has a year -round toll-free ferry that crosses between [[Kootenay Bay, British Columbia|Kootenay Bay]] and [[Balfour, British Columbia|Balfour]], and is a popular summer tourist destination.<ref>{{cite web|url=http://wldb.ilec.or.jp/Lake.asp?LakeID=NAM-25 |title=International Lake Environment Committee, Promoting Sustainable Management of the World's Lakes and Reservoirs, KOOTENAY LAKE, February 15, 2011 |publisher=Wldb.ilec.or.jp |date= |accessdate=2013-05-02}}</ref>
