The Water Council is working with another nonprofit and four large agricultural companies to improve water stewardship near Lake Winnipeg in Manitoba, Canada.

Nutrien, General Mills, Simplot and BASF are working with The Water Council and ALUS on a pilot project aimed at improving water quality and quantity on the eastern Prairies by altering land, water and nutrient management on Manitoba farms. The initiative, called the Lake Winnipeg Water Stewardship Project, will be tested with producers who farm in two watersheds — the Seine Rat Roseau Watershed District in southeast Manitoba and the Redboine River Watershed in the central part of the province.
