Residents of Alberta's Lake Wabamun will have to sue on their own if they want compensation for what they say are years of pollution and low water levels on the popular Alberta lake west of Edmonton.

Madam Justice Juliana Topolniski of the Court of Queen's Bench rejected class-action certification for a lawsuit seeking millions from the Alberta government and TransAlta, which operates a power plant on the lake.
