CELEBRATING THE 5OTH ANNIVERSARY OF GARDINER DAM!

It was a beautiful day today and a great crowd was out to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Gardiner Dam!  Check out the video taken at the celebration here.

Honourable Scott Moe, Honourable Ralph Goodale and several officials from Water Security Agency and SaskPower attended the celebration today.  The public enjoyed a barbeque and many activities.

Gardiner Dam, located 25 kilometres north of the Village of Elbow on the South Saskatchewan River is the principal dam which includes Lake Diefenbaker.

60 percent of Saskatchewan’s population gets its drinking water from Lake Diefenbaker and the South Saskatchewan River.

More than a third of Saskatchewan’s population depends on Lake Diefenbaker for various purposes including power generation, irrigation, recreation, wildlife habitat, as well as municipal and/or industrial use.
