Sask. farmers complain about illegal drainage ditches
Several farmers went to the legislature to say that the government needs to shut down illegal ditches.
Illegal drainage on farmland in Saskatchewan is pitting neighbour against neighbour.
Environment Minister Dustin Duncan says the Saskatchewan Watershed Authority is trying to clear a backlog of complaints following heavy flooding last year.
Duncan says information will be sent to landowners outlining the ramifications of digging illegal ditches.
