16.14: Sewage Lagoons at Neepawa

In a similar spatial arrangement to that seen in Brandon, the sewage lagoons at Neepawa 1 are located northeast of the town 2. Sewage is treated before being released into the nearby Whitemud River 3 that flows to Lake Manitoba. The town obtains its water from Lake Irwin, an impoundment of the Whitemud River. The reservoir 4, dam 5, and spillway 6 can be seen near the southern edge of the photo.
