Water Security Agency Investing $2.5 million in Lac La Ronge Dam Project

June 15, 2021 – The Water Security Agency (WSA) has started a major project that will improve the safety, efficiency, and long term stability of the Lac La Ronge Dam. The $2.5 million project includes seepage remediation and a modern steel structure over the spillway to install/remove stoplogs.

In order to keep the public safe, the WSA is restricting access to the site during the construction period to eliminate hazards. The project is expected to last until September 2021, weather permitting

The Water Security Agency intends to maintain the water level of Lac La Ronge Lake at the bottom of its range (364.10 to 364.40m) to provide crews with the needed space to complete the project safely and effectively. This could vary based on potential precipitation this summer.

WSA apologizes for any inconvenience and will work to ensure disruptions are minimized.  

WSA regulates the operation of all water control structures in Saskatchewan, including 72 dams and related water supply channels, with the objective of maximizing benefits to Saskatchewan residents.
