About Us

Our Story

In January, 2020; the Watershed District Act joined the Lake of the Prairies, Little Saskatchewan River and the Upper Assiniboine River Conservation Districts into what is now known as the Assiniboine West Watershed District. The board members of the watershed district is comprised of representatives from each sub-district along and a provincial appointee. Along with the board members, the local municipal partners and organizations team up with our staff to provide conservation services that will lead to the increase of water quality within the boundaries of AWWD and beyond.
