Upper Souris Watershed Association

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 download a copy from the page "Watershed protection Plan".


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