Some end-of-season maintenance is underway in one of Saskatchewan’s provincial parks.
It affects two lakes and one river, and according to Patrick Boyle, with the Water Security Agency, this clean-up job is necessary.
Boyle says as of now, water flow from the Qu’Appelle River has been stopped from flowing into Buffalo Pound Lake.
Boyle says the major reason to clean up the river is to clear out some of the weeds, including one called Milfoil.
Work will include the installation of a stabilization process along the river bed.
Boyle says the outcome is improved water supply and healthier fish.
He says the shutdown to the water flow will last about two weeks.
