About Us


The Northeast Red Watershed District (NRWD) was previously known as the Cooks Creek Conservation District and established in 1979 as a partnership between the Province of Manitoba and local Rural Municipalities to address local soil and water issues. In January of 2020, the District changed its name as part of a province-wide initiative to align Districts based on Watersheds and not political boundaries. 

The District prides itself on being a grassroots organization with local people making decisions on the landscape, and is governed by a Board of Directors that consist of Municipal Councillors and Citizen Appointees.

Our Municipal Members are:

  • RM of Springfield
  • RM of Taché
  • RM of Ste. Anne
  • RM of Brokenhead
  • RM of Reynolds
  • RM of Lac du Bonnet
  • RM of St. Clements

The Northeast Red Watershed District is one of the four Watershed Districts with an infrastructure mandate in Manitoba and manages 315 miles of waterways, 735 crossings, and 12 bridges.
