The risk of flooding is extremely low. Lake Diefenbaker is a manmade reservoir that is 140 miles long with over 580 miles of shoreline. The Water Security Agency sets the environmental reserve level at a maximum high water mark and the water cannot exceed this level, with height and flow regulated by the Gardiner Dam. It is important to note that water levels can fluctuate significantly in a short amount of time. Lake Diefenbaker has exceptional water quality for water sports, fishing, and agricultural/irrigation purposes, among other uses.

Please note that construction and/or removal of a permanent dock or boat lift that is attached through permanent anchoring systems, driven piles, or other permanent anchoring systems to the bed, bank or boundary of a water body requires a permit from the WSA. If your proposed project is within municipal lands, you may require consent from the appropriate RM, Village or District authority during your planning phase (e.g. Municipal Reserve, Public Reserve, Environmental Reserve or municipal road allowance).
Lot owners can develop within their property boundaries. As developers we have no jurisdiction on land governed by the local Municipality (Municipal Reserve or Environmental Reserve) and Water Security Agency (WSA). Any lakeshore alteration requires a permit that is available through the Water Security Agency.
