Watershed Planning

Integrated Watershed Management Planning 

Integrated Watershed Management Planning (IWMP) is a cooperative effort by watershed residents, government and other stakeholders to create a long term plan to manage land, water and related resources on a watershed basis. All watershed management plans are unique and are a reflection of the landscape and concerns of the community within each watershed. 

Pembina River Integrated Watershed Management Plan (2011)  

The watershed planning process for the Canadian portion of the Pembina River Basin was published in 2011 and involved stakeholders consultation identifying issues, assets and an action plan. This document provides a 10 year direction and work plan for all stakeholders to create a healthier watershed for future generations. There are 4 components to the plan and they are: The Written Report, The Action Plan Table, The Surface Water Protection Assessment, and The Surface Water Management Plan for each Municipality.  

Plum- Marais River Integrated Watershed Mangement Plan 

This watershed begins above the Manitoba Escarpment near Darlingford MB, travels down and meanders in natural and man-made waterways eastward to the Red River through some of the most productive agricultural soils in the province. Participants in this process are anticipated to be all the municipalities that share this resource and all other stakeholders that live, work, play or otherwise have a responsibility towards land and water system.

This past winter (2021), public consult meetings were held throughout this watershed to hear from the public about their concerns with the watershed and its health. The What We Heard Report can be found below.
