Dam at Wawanesa

Here the northeastward-flowing Souris River 1 has incised meanders into the surrounding landscape. One meander encircles the village of Wawanesa 2, while another northeast of the village has been abandoned 3. At the time the photo was taken five items of infrastructure crossed the river. Furthest upstream is a buried pipeline 4. South of the village, close to each other is a road bridge 5 and a railway bridge 6. The approaches to both were washed out in a large flood in 1976; only the road bridge was restored. North of the village, a weir 7 with rapidly flowing water downstream 8 holds back water for municipal water supply. The river channel is wider above the weir 9 than it is below 10. A second highway bridge 11 carries PR 340 northwards out of the village towards Brandon.
