The Government of Saskatchewan is delivering on a promise to re-new the Saskatchewan Watershed Authority's operating plan for Lake Diefenbaker. Recently, more than 80 stakeholders met to discuss the future operation of Lake Diefenbaker. This informational meeting was the first step in the consultation process and displays the crucial role stakeholders play in the creation of the next operating plan.

"Lake Diefenbaker is the most important water resource and integral to current and future economic development in the province," Minister responsible for the Saskatchewan Watershed Authority Ken Chevaldayoff said. "Our government is committed to engaging our stakeholders and developing a solid plan for the people of Saskatchewan."

Representatives from Saskatchewan First Nations, recreational users, industrial and environmental groups, cities, towns, communities, and provincial and federal agencies attended the meeting and will participate in further consultation meetings. Consultations will continue into the fall with final development of a new reservoir operating plan scheduled for 2013.
