Body of flood water near Lampman named Lake Roy
A body of water that has been a problem for over a year near Lampman now has a name.
The miles of overland flooding near Lampman has been renamed Lake Roy.
“It basically covers Roy’s land, a family that’s farmed there for years,” said Greg Wallin, the administrator with the town of Lampman.
Nearly one dozen towns and RMs that it affects have also been united by it to form the Lake Roy Watershed Association. It’s a group hoping to see the water drained by the end of the year.
They're working now with engineers Stantec and the Saskatchewan Watershed Authority to determine how to return things back to normal.
Wallin is hopeful they'll come up with something by the end of the year.
