Water Security Agency to Operate Crooked Lake Structure
Aug. 1, 2013 - The Water Security Agency (WSA) is advising the public that the water control structure on Crooked Lake will begin operating today.
This operation will result in Crooked Lake rising back to its desirable level for recreational purposes. Currently, the lake is at 451.45 metres above sea level (masl) and is expected to rise roughly a foot to 451.71 masl.
Settlement of the flood claims with the First Nations affected by the control structure at Crooked Lake have been completed which now allows the Water Security Agency to operate the structure on behalf the federal government.
The Water Security Agency was created to lead implementation of the 25 Year Saskatchewan Water Security Plan. It will improve water management capacity and service to individuals, businesses and communities across Saskatchewan. This new agency brings together, for the first time, all of the major responsibilities related to water quality and quantity.
