Water Levels Up on Churchill River System

A regional manager for the Saskatchewan Watershed Authority believes spring rains have been just what the doctor ordered for the Churchill River system.


Don Dill explains the system has experienced below-normal water levels for the past year or so, but has benefited from some downpours that took place in mid-June.


Dill says Saskatchewan’s northern regions haven’t been as badly hit by drought as the province’s south, but points out the rain is still timely and needed.


Dill adds northern Saskatchewan’s west side has especially benefited from the June rains.


He says Lac La Plonge and Buffalo Narrows are two of the areas where water levels have been partially replenished.
