Funding available in Saskatchewan for constructed drainage projects to reduce agricultural flooding and erosion

by

Up to one million in funding is now available for maintenance on natural and constructed agricultural drainage projects.

Previously, the Water Security Agency (WSA) only provided funding for natural watercourses.

“Obstructions in natural and constructed watercourses can cause flooding and erosion problems and be a significant cost burden to producers and local governments,” says Jeremy Cockrill, minister responsible for the Water Security Agency.”We believe advancing channel clearing and drainage maintenance projects throughout the province can help landowners better protect private and public infrastructure.”

Local governments can apply for the funding including, rural municipalities (RMs), Conservation and Development Area Authorities (C&Ds) and Watershed Associations.

Assistance will be provided as a rebate of up to 50 per cent of the eligible costs for activities carried out during the 2022-23 program year. Activities can include removing silt, beaver dams and debris, such as trees, brush and deadfall, to lessen the possibilities of blockages that can cause flooding to roadways and agricultural land.

Those interested, have up until January 31, 2023 to apply for the rebate.
