Souris River

International Souris River Board
The International Souris River Board monitors the apportionment of waters of the Souris River at its two international boundary crossings consistent with 1989 Canada-United States Agreement for Water Supply and Flood Control in the Souris River Basin. The Board also helps implement and review the Joint Water Quality Monitoring Program pursuant to this agreement. In addition, the Board keeps the IJC informed of water use and water-related development activities in the basin.
