APAS supports Provincial Funding for Saskatchewan Conservation and Development Association

The Agricultural Producers Association of Saskatchewan has expressed its full support for the $5 million in new Provincial funding that was announced recently for the Saskatchewan Conservation and Development Association (SCDA) to advance Saskatchewan’s Agricultural Water Management Strategy.
“APAS members support a co-ordinated and community-based approach to agricultural water management, and this funding will build on the existing strengths of our Conservation and Development Associations and Watershed Associations,” explained APAS President Todd Lewis.
“We believe that the SCDA has the skill set and credibility with producers to improve water management on the rural landscape. We have been working with SCDA and other stakeholders involved in rural water management, and this new initiative will help move us forward.”
“We are particularly pleased that the new funding will allow for the organization of new group projects and will support water management with additional support, and this means the goal of permitting all existing agricultural water projects is much more realistic.”
