Rural Water Stewardship

Farming Best Management Practices (BMP) – In the context of farming, Best Management Practices are effective and practical methods of minimizing risks to the environment without jeopardizing economic productivity.


Septic Systems – Most Manitobans who are not connected to a municipal sewer system use a septic tank and leaching bed. Proper maintenance of your septic system is essential for your safety and environmental protection.


Manitoba Conservation Districts – Conservation Districts provide technical and financial assistance to local residents in the planning and delivery of programs.


Wetlands and Shorelines – In settled areas of Canada, 70% of wetlands have been destroyed or drained. This happening because most people don’t understand how beneficial wetlands are to both us and the environment.
