Description
Correction Line Between Townships 6 and 7 Southwest of Souris

The boundary between ranges 22 and 23WI runs down the centre of this area 1, the southern half of which lies in township 6 and the northern half in township 7 between which there is a correction line. The size of the correction increases with each range west, so that here it is about 0.82 miles (4356 feet) compared with about 672 feet in figure 7.13 further east. The correction is best seen in the rows of sections, one to the east of the range line 2. The correction affects the direction of south/north gravel roads which tend to be deflected the 0.2 miles east rather than the longer distance west 3.

The northeastward-flowing Souris River 4 crosses the area. In the southwest it is a freely meandering river with several good examples of abandoned meanders; some, filled with water, are relatively recent 5, whereas others are older and have been unfilled by vegetation 6. Southeast of the river slight elevations in the ground moraine topography are light-toned due to rain splash erosion 7. Land northwest of the river is sandy and less suited to agriculture, hence several treed areas 8. In this dry area of southwestern Manitoba, dugouts—dark-toned oblong areas 9—are found in many sections.

The area is sparsely populated with only one or two farmsteads per section, often along section lines 10, producing a very dispersed population. The only major route way is the CN railway line 11 crossing the area diagonally. In the north an elevator 12—identified from its shadow—is located on a spur line at Menteith.
