Quill Lakes Fact Sheet

The following information has been provided by the Water Security Agency:

Sent on behalf of Dale Hjertaas Executive Director, Policy and Communications for the Water Security Agency.

As you know, Water Security Agency is examining a potential project to divert flow of Kutawagan Creek away from Big Quill Lake to Last Mountain Lake.  The intent is to slow the rise of the Quill Lakes and reduce flooding, protect highways and prevent an overflow of saline water from Big Quill into Last Mountain Lake.   Some of the concerns Water Security Agency is receiving about the project are based on inaccurate information on the project and its effects.  We have therefore prepared  the attached fact sheet to provide a brief description of the proposed project, its status, and answer a number of the questions we are hearing. While we have shared this information at our open houses and consultation meetings, not everyone was able to visit one of the open houses. 

Additional information on the proposed project is available at the Water Security Agency website (www.wsask.ca).

May 19 Press Release

Good afternoon. This is a press release for the Town of Regina Beach.

Over the past year the Town of Regina Beach has been experiencing issues pertaining to slope stability worsened by the high water levels that have plagued South Saskatchewan.  This has had an impact on properties as well as water service in Regina Beach. To date in 2015, the Town has experienced over 30 water main breaks/separations affecting a number of residences, at times as many as 20 or more.  On Monday, May 18th the Town had a serious water main break/separation which could not be isolated for repairs using conventional methods.  As such, the Public Works department was required to alter water service to the entire community. This drastic measure permitted the Town maintenance forces to undertake the necessary repairs much quicker than using other methods. This resulted in the resumption of water service within 24 hours to most of the community with the exception of a few streets where other breaks/separations had occurred.

The Town will continue to communicate the status of its water services to its businesses and residents via its website, Facebook and media releases.

After Hours Water Emergency Phone Number Reminder

The after hours water emergency phone number is for reporting water emergencies only. (ie: water main breaks or water service line breaks). Please do not call this number for inquiry or questions or comments.  Please be respectful.  Town staff work hard to respond to emergency water situations.  Thank you for your cooperation.

House numbers

It is a Bylaw that all houses in Regina Beach have a number positioned in such a place as to make it visible from the street.  Failure to comply with this bylaw could result in a fine.

Ice Fishing Shacks

All fishing shacks are required to be labelled with name, phone number, and address.  Shacks must be off of the lake by no later than March 15.

Shacks not adhering to the above may be removed from the lake.  Contact the Ministry of Environment at 306-787-2080 or the Town Office at 306-729-2202.

It is a Bylaw that all dogs must be licensed

"Every person who owns, possesses or harbours any dog over the age of three months, (onus of proving age of the animal shall be on the owner thereof) shall not later than the 15th day of January in each year or within thirty (30) days of becoming an owner, obtain a license and shall pay therefore an annual fee as set out in Schedule “A” of this bylaw. All licenses issued under the provisions of this bylaw shall expire on December 31 next following the date of issue."

License are available at the Town office which is open from 8:30 - 4:30 Monday to Friday.

Owners of all dogs found wandering can be subject to a fine and if they are not licensed the fine will be adjusted to include the license fee of $5 for dogs that are neutered and $25 for dogs not neutered.

Keep your dogs safe!! and remember not everyone likes dogs!!

MINISTRY OF PARKS, CULTURE AND SPORT TO UNDERTAKE DRAINAGE WORK AT REGINA BEACH RECREATION SITE

http://www.saskatchewan.ca/government/news-and-media/2014/december/15/drainage-at-regina-beach

Released on December 15, 2014

The Ministry of Parks, Culture and Sport will be working with the Town of Regina Beach to improve drainage within the provincial recreation site.

The heavy rain during the summer of 2014 has resulted in soil saturation and caused erosion and ground slumping of the recreation site.  Drainage improvements will help to prevent water ponding and reduce the impacts from run-off.

The ministry commissioned an independent engineering firm to inspect the recreation site and develop a drainage plan.  The work will take place on the east side of the recreation site, along an old railway bed that has been converted into a walking trail.  The work will include the removal of vegetation along the walking path, grading improvements and the installation of several culverts.

This drainage work will begin immediately and will continue as long as weather and working conditions permit as the culverts will be an important part of mitigating erosion during spring run-off.  Remediation of the site will be determined as the final stage of this project.

The Government of Saskatchewan recognizes the value and importance of Saskatchewan’s provincial parks and continues to invest in them.  The 2014-15 Budget increased funding to provincial parks by 4.6 per cent and capital investments will total a record $14.9 million this year.
