The Upper Souris Watershed Association is an
independent, non-profit organization that has been developed to
implement the key action items from the Watershed Protection Plan.
The USWA was incorporated as a non-profit on February 24, 2010.
Not only do we want to improve water quality and
water quantity within the watershed, but ensure water for social,
economic, environmental and cultural uses for future generations.
The watershed protection plan has been developed under the
leadership of Saskatchewan Watershed Authority by holding meetings
with local watershed advisory committees, that have local
representatives from; rural and urban municipalities, First
Nations, the Region 3 Metis Nation, agricultural organizations,
industry, government and non-government organizations.
A technical committee provided input into the
concerns from the local committees and developed recommendations
and actions to address these concerns. The plan has
been completed and released in October of 2010. Please

We are in the implementation phase, which
includes working on the 40 key actions from the "Plan".
