Manitoba Conservation Districts are a Provincial and Municipal partnership that is directed towards water and soil conservation.
Kelsey Watershed District was formed in January of 1999. Of all the 18 Conservation Districts in the Province of MB, we are the most diverse as we are surrounded by numerous ecosystems. Our borders are the RM of Kelsey. Within these boundaries as well as outside these boundaries is our Watershed. The Saskatchewan River Basin stretches from the province of Alberta through Saskatchewan and Manitoba emptying into Hudson Bay. This watershed envelops many lakes, rivers, potholes, swamps and marshlands. With the help of our partners, the Rural Municipality of Kelsey and Manitoba Sustainable Development, Kelsey Watershed District’s mandate is to address watershed issues and offer incentive based programming to improve soil and water quality, aquatic and riparian health, and provide educational programming. After all everything and everyone is reliant on a healthy water supply.

The Carrot-Saskatchewan River Integrated Watershed Management Plan encompasses the area of land in Manitoba which contributes water to the Carrot River and the Saskatchewan River watershed. The Kelsey Conservation District is leading plan development in partnership with the Provincial government and a team of supporting agencies, interest groups and watershed residents.
The purpose of the Carrot-Saskatchewan River Integrated Watershed Management Plan (IWMP) is to positively influence land and water management, with a focus on protecting water, aquatic ecosystems and drinking water sources in the Carrot-Saskatchewan River Watershed.
