After close to a year of planning and applying we have final made a major step with the rearing pond. A work bee was held this September to get the rearing pond back up and running.
We still have some work to complete but we are hoping to have the water added in the early spring.
We have sleeved the existing 24” culvert that is used to drain the pond with a 16” heavy walled pipe. Concrete was used to seal the existing culvert to the new pipe. We are currently finalizing the valve and the walkway to the valve.
This project couldn’t have happened without the help and donations from Stewart Steel, A and B Concrete, Apex Distribution Inc (Estevan) and South Sask Rathole.
We are discussing with the Saskatchewan Fish Hatchery to ensure Nickle Lake is on the list to be put back into a yearly walleye release.
