Abstract: "The Dauphin Lake Drainage Basin covers 3,250 square miles in the Parkland Region of western central Manitoba. Major topographic features are the Riding and Duck Mountains, the Manitoba escarpment, and Dauphin Lake. The health of the Dauphin Lake Basin is in jeopardy. The process of deterioration began accelerating in the 1950s and 1960s. Erosion and siltation, water quality, fisheries and lake regulation are key issues being addressed by the Dauphin Lake Basin Advisory Board. Nursing the Basin back to health, that is, putting the basin's social and economic development on a sustainable footing, is expected to take a combination of new and existing programs. It will take a partnership of government and the local community to put together a 'living' management plan for the Dauphin Lake Basin."
