Chapter 16: Water Resources

16.3: Water Supply Strategies in the Assiniboine Valley

Hundreds of small dams have been built across streams in southern Manitoba to provide water for domestic and farm use. Here a dam 1 has been built across a small stream 2 that drained to the Assiniboine River 3 in the northeast corner of the photo. The resulting reservoir 4 provides water for a nearby Hutterite colony 5. Also visible are two dugouts 6 excavated to retain water for cattle.
