Second Saskatchewan source water protection plan completed

MOOSE JAW, SASK-A locally-developed plan to protect and manage source water in the Moose Jaw River watershed is now complete, making it the second such plan to be released in Saskatchewan. It follows the completion of the Lower Souris River watershed source water protection plan, which was released this past April. The Moose Jaw River watershed includes 22 rural municipalities, two towns and ten villages, in addition to the city of Moose Jaw itself. Progress is also being made on source water protection plans in the Assiniboine River, North Saskatchewan River, South Saskatchewan River and Upper Qu'Appelle River watersheds and the Yorkton-area aquifers. The Moose Jaw River watershed source water protection plan may be viewed on-line at www.swa.ca. More information is available from John Durbin at the Saskatchewan Watershed Authority, 306/953-2875.
