Yellow Fish Road

Did you know storm water goes to our rivers untreated? Unwanted household products discarded in storm drains flow directly through underground pipes into our river. As stewards for water protection, our goal is to educate the community on the best practices for maintaining clean water sources.

In 1991, Trout Unlimited Canada introduced the Yellow Fish Road program, which has since been adopted nationwide to raise awareness about water conservation and the community's role in maintaining clean water sources.

The Moose Jaw River Watershed Stewards, in collaboration with the South Hill Community Association and Wakamow Valley, offer a complimentary program aimed at students in grades 4-8. This initiative educates participants on how storm drains directly impact the water system.

Under the supervision of trained adults, youth groups are encouraged to paint storm drains as a visual reminder of proper waste disposal practices.
