Water Security Agency Advising the Public of Debris on Lakes this Weekend

May 16, 2013 -- The Water Security Agency (WSA) is advising the public to be aware of the potential for more logs, sticks and other similar debris on Saskatchewan lakes this long weekend.

There have been reports to the WSA of debris floating on the surface of some lakes. This is the result of recent high flows and lake levels through most of Saskatchewan. These high levels often bring with it more logs and branch like debris into the lakes. Higher lake levels can also reach and mobilize other items on shore like logs and docks.  

This can pose a serious hazard to boaters and recreational users. The public is being advised to watch for this type of debris while doing any recreational activities this weekend on Saskatchewan lakes. 

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.
