Decommissioning of Tenaille Lake Water Infrastructure

Project proposes to decommission abandoned irrigation infrastructure at Tenaille Lake.  Project will involve the decommissioning of inlet canals, ditches and dikes; the removal of water control structures like gates and corrugated steel pipe; and site revegetation.  No in-water work is required as part of this project.  This infrastructure has been abandoned for many years and needs to be removed.  The area was more recently operated as part of the Community Pasture Program.  This work is scheduled to occur July through November, 2020.

Project is located in southwest Saskatchewan, approximately 20 km north of the Town of Maple Creek.  Tenaille Lake is a shallow intermittent lake, adjacent to the Maple Creek channel.
