Historia

The Saskatchewan Water Appeal Board, formerly called the Saskatchewan Drainage Appeal Board, was established on July 1, 1984, when The Water Appeal Board Act came into effect in Saskatchewan. The purpose of the board is to hear appeals of the decisions of the Water Security Agency made pursuant to The Water Security Agency Act, 2005 (formerly called the Saskatchewan Watershed Authority Act). The appeals pertain to issues of water usage, alteration of natural water flows, drainage complaints, permit applications, and sewage problems in the province. Many of the appeals relate to farming and its water-related issues of flooding, erosion, drought, and irrigation.

The Water Security Agency investigates and adjudicates disputes and determines decisions, orders, and actions. If the affected parties wish to appeal the decision, an appeal is made to the Water Appeal Board within 30 days. The board has the power to affirm, vary, or substitute decisions made by the agency.

By resolving these water-related disputes, the Water Appeal Board assists in managing the province's water supply by protecting water quality and ensuring safe drinking water and the appropriate treatment of wastewater. Water management helps to regulate water supply channels, reduce flood and drought damage, protect aquatic habitats and resolve trans-boundary water issues.

The Water Appeal Board is a corporate body and fully responsible for its own financial operations. Funding for the Water Appeal Board is through the Saskatchewan Ministry of Environment. The board consists of no more than eight members appointed by the Lieutenant Governor in Council on the recommendation of the minister. Members serve on the board for three year terms. The Water Appeals Board continues (2017) to operate.
