Water Security Agency Launches Online Drainage Consultation

August 16, 2013

The Water Security Agency is launching its first ever online consultation forum to receive input from Saskatchewan residents on agricultural drainage.

Minister responsible for Water Security Agency Ken Cheveldayoff said.  “This online forum offers an opportunity to have a large number of people share ideas and information to help us develop the best overall policy.”

The forum is now accepting clients and will continue to do so up until March 31, 2014.  Farmers, ranchers and landowners with an interest in agricultural drainage, and people impacted by or concerned about agricultural drainage, are encouraged to sign up now and help create a new drainage policy for the province by visiting the Water Security Agency’s website  http://agdrainage.insightrix.com.

The Cities of Regina and Moose Jaw get all of their drinking water supply from Buffalo Pound Lake which is supplied from Lake Diefenbaker through the Qu'Appelle River.
