In March of 2009, the East Interlake Conservation District signed a Memorandum of
Understanding with the Province of Manitoba to be designated as the Water Planning Authority
for the Fisher River watershed. Manitoba Conservation and Water Stewardship provided a
$25,000 grant to assist with plan development. Additional in-kind funding will be provided by
other stakeholders and all levels of government.
 
The East Interlake Conservation District formed a Project Management Team in the Fall of 2011
to begin the development of the Fisher River IWMP. The Project Management Team includes
representatives from the East Interlake Conservation District, Manitoba Conservation and Water
and the community of Dallas Red-Rose. This group will guide the overall management and
development of the Fisher River IWMP over the next two years. The Project Management Team
will solicit input from residents of the watershed at various stages of development of this tenyear
plan.
 
“This watershed is extremely diverse and an important part of Manitoba’s Interlake region.
Residents, government and organizations each have a role to play to maintain and improve the
health of this watershed for generations to come” says East Interlake Conservation District
manager Armand Belanger. “By working in partnership with all levels of government,
stakeholders and residents to create an action oriented plan, we can ensure a healthy and
sustainable ecosystem that serves everyone. This is something I feel we all need to work
towards”.
