Integrated Watershed Management Planning

Roseau River Integrated Watershed Management Plan

The Roseau River integrated watershed management plan encompasses the area of land in southeastern Manitoba which contributes water to the Roseau River watershed. The Seine Rat River Conservation District is leading plan development in partnership with the Provincial government and a team of supporting agencies, interest groups and watershed residents.

It takes approximately two years to develop an integrated watershed management plan. The timeline on the right illustrates plan development progress.

In the development of an integrated watershed management plan the planning team invites a variety of groups to comment on issues important to them in the watershed. A summary of public comments will be posted here once consultations have been held. If you are interested in commenting on land and water issues important to you in your watershed, click on the Provide a Comment tab, located above.

Once a plan is initiated in an area a memorandum of understanding is developed between the water planning authority and the Province of Manitoba. The project management team then prepares the terms of the plan, including the timeline, budget, and scope of work.

Public consultations are held to better understand the concerns and issues of the watershed. The project management team invites watershed residents to provide comments through a variety of announcements. If public meetings have occurred, the results are summarized here.

The project management team asks technical experts and relevant stakeholder groups to provide information and issues about the watershed. A significant amount of valuable information is provided by:

Technical Submissions from Manitoba Sustainable Development by Topic

The planning team also works to review any relevant

Sometimes the technical information is summarized in a separate summary document, and sometimes technical information is summarized with the watershed plan.

Through a series of meetings with representatives from the Conservation District, and a broad range of technical and stakeholder representatives, a draft management plan is developed. Once this plan is reviewed by the public, the water planning authority and the Minister of Sustainable Development, an approved plan is published and plan actions are implemented.
