NEW SOURCE OF SAFE, CLEAN WATER FOR SASKATCHEWAN LANDING PROVINCIAL PARK

Released on January 24, 2013

Saskatchewan Landing Provincial Park will soon be provided with a long-term supply of quality potable water for its users.  Saskatchewan Landing Provincial Park is 5,735 hectares located on the west end of Lake Diefenbaker and straddles the South Saskatchewan River.  The park has great fishing, beaches, hiking trails and historical attractions.

“Saskatchewan’s strong growth allows us to continue to make investments to improve our parks,” Parks, Culture and Sport Minister Kevin Doherty said.  “This utility will provide an enhanced supply of quality potable water for users of Saskatchewan Landing Provincial Park.”

The Saskatchewan Landing Regional Water Pipeline Utility (SLRWPU) is a new potable water utility that will supply water from the high-quality Kyle aquifer.  The SLRWPU will consist of approximately 900 kilometres of water pipelines servicing 300 rural subscribers, the hamlets of White Bear and Lacadena, the village of Wiseton and Saskatchewan Landing Provincial Park.  The town of Kyle, town of Elrose, R.M. of Monet No. 257 and R.M. of Lacadena No. 228 formed the public utility and will also be receiving water from the project.  The utility will have water treatment plants in Kyle and Elrose.
 
The Ministry of Parks, Culture and Sport is contracting with SLRWPU of Elrose for $353,000 for the connection of Saskatchewan Landing Provincial Park to the newly-formed potable water utility.

The $353,000 includes the park’s share of the water line design, construction and installation costs for point-of-delivery service to the north park boundary adjacent to the park water reservoir.

Government has invested $33 million to improve Saskatchewan’s provincial parks from 2008 to 2012.  Government is continuing to improve Saskatchewan’s provincial parks by investing, over and above base capital funding, an additional $10 million in park upgrades from 2012 to 2016.
