July 26, 2012, Saskatchewan – The Saskatchewan Watershed Authority has developed a new 25 Year Saskatchewan Water Security Plan.

July 26, 2012, Saskatchewan – The Saskatchewan Watershed Authority has developed a new 25 Year Saskatchewan Water Security Plan, which will provide the
direction and long-term perspective to guide water management while addressing challenges created by the growing province. The plan will
increase Saskatchewan's ability to protect water quality, maintain aquatic
habitats, and ensure sustainable water supplies to support growth.

In 2011, the government held a first round of consultations on a
water strategy for the province. A total of 174 individuals,
representing 92 organizations, participated in consultation sessions.
Collectively, they indicated strong support for the development of a new
plan. The consultation document is based on what was heard during those
consultations.

Advertisment

The plan will take a long-term perspective and incorporate the
ability to adapt and respond to change. The plan provides specific
actions that targeted for implementation within the next few years.
Assessment and reporting on progress will be undertaken annually, and
new actions identified to ensure the water vision is achieved.
