Chapter 16: Water Resources

16.67: Part of the Central Red River Plain Near Ste. Agathe

The Red River 1 crosses the area from southwest to northeast. The Rat River 2 from the south into which flows Marsh River 3 joins it. Another unnamed right bank tributary 4 joins the Red near the top of the photo. St. Agathe 5 is located west of the Red with PTH 75 6 bypassing it to the west. The CN railway line 7 roughly parallels this road. PR 200 8 runs alongside the river to the east, and PR 305 9 is the main east/west road. Part of Niverville 10 is seen near the eastern edge of the photo, and Otterburne 11 is located on the Rat River in the southeast.

The long lot system produces long narrow fields on either side of the Red River 12, whereas the characteristic squares of the DLS system are seen to east 13 and west 14.

The boundary between townships 6 and 7 is a correction line; as this area is east of the principal meridian, the correction is to the east 15.
