Dauphin’s drinking water comes from Edwards Lake in Riding Mountain National Park.

Quite a few years ago the agreement to use the water lapsed so Bill Brenner met with people from RMNP to make sure Dauphin can continue to use the water.

Brenner met with them about making a new agreement.

The city of Dauphin has sent the agreement to the park to have it looked over and approved.

The main points of that draft are, the city of Dauphin can keep its infrastructure at the lake, Dauphin can work with RMNP to make sure we have water when needed, RMNP will help out with water flow any way they are needed, and the basics of how to deal with emergencies.

The city is now awaiting a response from RMNP.
