The Water Security Agency (WSA) announce 20 million in funding near Lake Diefenbaker as part of their 10-year Infrastructure Rehabilitation Plan. This funding will allow the agency to continue to provide sustainable and reliable water supply and keep up with increasing demand.

According to the Water Security Agency release the projects are occurring at three different locations, including:

 Gardiner Dam 

Detailed design and installation of safety booms across the spillway inlet channel and in front of the East Side Pump Station, ensuring the public can safely enjoy recreational activities.
$1.5 million dam safety upgrades, which will improve operator safety.
$5.8 million repairs to the concrete spillway at the Tunnel Control Structure #5, with additional measures to better regulate the energy created from water releases.

East Side Pump Station (ESPS) 

Replacement of high voltage substation. WSA is investing $12 million to upgrade the substation from 72,000 volts to 138,000 volts to meet current demands. 
An electrical house (E-House) that will contain integral electrical infrastructure in a climate-controlled environment that will extend the life span of the equipment. 

Broderick Reservoir 

WSA is wrapping up a $1 million project that replaced the control gates in both outlet structures and provided many safety upgrades to ensure the operations staff and local stakeholders can safely divert water. WSA will also begin riprap rehabilitation on the north and west embankments this summer.
