Water Security Agency

The Water Security Agency is a unique organization in Canada – bringing together all of government’s core water management responsibilities in one place. We manage the province’s water supply, protect water quality, ensure safe drinking water and treatment of wastewater, own and manage 49 dams and related water supply channels, reduce flood and drought damage, protect aquatic habitat and provide information about water.

Working in the fields of engineering, hydrology, hydrogeology, public policy, habitat protection, water resource allocation and regulations, the Water Security Agency leads implementation of the 25 Year Saskatchewan Water Security Plan. The plan ensures the sustainability and quality of Saskatchewan’s surface and ground water supplies while protecting drinking water supplies from the source to the tap. Sustainable water supplies support growth, a healthy environment and quality of life for the people of Saskatchewan.
