About the South Saskatchewan River Watershed Stewards Inc. (SSRWSI)

The SSRWSI strives to protect water quality and quantity within the South Saskatchewan River. We ultimately believe that watershed stewardship is about serving the community by protecting resources for both the residents, and the natural ecosystems of the watershed. Some of the important actions that the watershed stewards address through education, awareness, and communication with members of the watershed community include:

  • Developing and implementing an educational and communication strategy for the watershed
  • Facilitating financial and technical support to ensure the provision of safe drinking water
  • Protecting groundwater by encouraging residents to test domestic water wells
  • Promoting and encouraging the voluntary retention  and of native upland and wetland habitats
  • Developing a regional landfill plan in partnership with our members
  • Providing  residents with information about recycling and disposing of harmful chemicals
  • Promoting the development of a storm water management plan for all urban communities

      There is little in the natural environment, economy, and society of Saskatchewan that is not intimately tied to and sustained by the flow and storage of water... nowhere else in Canada does the lack or excess of water cause such widespread concern, nor are there many Canadian environments that are subject to greater seasonal change”

- Pomeroy, de Boer, and MartzHydrology and Water Resources of Saskatchewan, 2005
