Watershed Planning

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.

This watershed planning exercise is scheduled to start in 2020 or early 2021. The Watershed District and Municipal partners are primed to start this consultation process. This watershed begins above the Manitoba Escarpment near Darlingford MB, travels down the escarpment and then 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.
