Souris board will host open house


The International Souris River Board (ISRB) will host a public open house in Weyburn on Wednesday, August 7.

The ISRB assists the International Joint Commission in preventing and resolving disputes relating to the trans-boundary waters of the Souris River basin.

The public meeting has two purposes. The first is to present a brief overview of ISRB activities and objectives pertaining to water management in the Souris River basin.

In addition, the meeting will provide the general public with an opportunity to ask questions and discuss current issues affecting the Souris River basin, such as drought, flooding, water quality, ecosystem health and the apportionment of water between the U.S. and Canada.

Canadian agencies involved in the ISRB include Environment Canada, Manitoba Water Stewardship, the Saskatchewan Watershed Authority, and the Saskatchewan Ministry of Environment.

American agencies include the U.S. Geological Survey, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, the North Dakota State Water Commission, the North Dakota Game and Fish Department, and North Dakota's Department of Health.

The meeting will start at 7 p.m. at Weyburn's Travelodge Hotel.
