WATER SECURITY AGENCY LAUNCHES ONLINE DRAINAGE CONSULTATION

Released on August 14, 2013

The Water Security Agency is launching its first ever online consultation forum to receive input from Saskatchewan residents on agricultural drainage.
 
“We committed to developing new approaches and regulations on agricultural drainage in the 25 Year Saskatchewan Water Security Plan and this is a major step in that direction,” 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 Water Security Agency hired Saskatoon based Insightrix Research to create the online engagement forum to consult with individuals across the province.  The forum will focus on agricultural drainage and be active from September 1 to March 31.  It allows participants to discuss a range of topics related to agricultural drainage, including downstream flooding, water quality, and effects on biodiversity.  Forum participants will also be able to interact with each other and will be asked to participate in a series of discussions and surveys.

The forum is now accepting clients.  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 at wsask.ca or http://agdrainage.insightrix.com.

The Water Security Agency was created to lead implementation of the 25 Year Saskatchewan Water Security Plan.  It will improve water management capacity and service to individuals, businesses and communities across Saskatchewan.  This new agency brings together, for the first time, all of the major responsibilities related to water quality and quantity.
