Public Works will be undertaking drainage improvements on MacMurchy Ave. between 2nd St. W. and 3rd St. W. The work will require the road to be CLOSED from 9:00am this morning to late Thursday, November 24th, and possibly to Friday morning, November 25th.
Canadian Utility, the SaskEnergy contractor, will be moving to 5th Avenue to complete their upgrades/repairs on that street after they complete 6th Avenue. It is anticipated that both crews will be busy on 5th Avenue for most of next week. They have indicated that they will make every attempt to carry out their operations such that at least one-lane of traffic is open to traffic. They will manage traffic control for the two-way when required.
ASL Paving will be prepping sections for pavement repairs. The areas they are planning to complete include:
Road Closures & Limitations - Please note that 14th Street East will be closed to traffic tomorrow from Bryden Crescent to 5th Avenue. The other area that may have some traffic flow disruptions is 3rd Avenue. The work on 2nd Street East will be limited in scope/area and as such will not require closure of the entire roadway.
SaskEnergy's schedule as part of the 2016 Infrastructure Renewal Project by Canadian Utility Contractor has been modified. One of the two crews have been directed to Bryden Crescent to complete a couple of jobs/service connections. Once they have completed these , the crew will me moving onto 6th Avenue to assist their other crew with finishing the work on that street. It is our understanding that this work will take them into tomorrow. Then sometime tomorrow November 15th, one crew will move to 7th Avenue and the other to 5th Avenue.
Lack of traffic access was brought to the Town's attention. The following is an update:
14th St. E. between 5th Ave. and the first access to Bryden Cres. - traffic access restricted to one lane.
12th St. E. south of 5th Ave - SaskEnergy will be making access for traffic.

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).
SaskEnergy will be working over the next few weeks on maintenance and upgrades around Regina Beach.
August 31, 2015 - work will be starting at 7th St. E. & 4th Ave. and 4th St. E. and 3rd Ave.
The Town has been approved for designation for July 27 & 28, 2015. See Town Office/PDAP-Provincial Disaster Assistance Program page for more information.
Jun 11/15 - Please note that on Tuesday, June 16, 2015, the Town office will be undergoing some computer network maintenance. As such, there will be disrupted access to our computer system and ability to process payments. We ask that residents please hold requests until our system is back online Wed. Jun 17/15. Thank you for your anticipated cooperation.
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.
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.
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.
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.

All licenses issued under the provisions of this bylaw shall expire on December 31 next following the date of issue."

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

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.
