Land Owners Guide Coverpage

The Manitoba Prairie Wetland Classification Guide is designed to aid landowners in efficient and informed classification of wetlands when submitting a Water Rights application for legal drainage or other water management activities on their property. This guide provides the means for identifying class 1 and 2 wetlands for conservation programs such as GROW.

This guide supports the new Manitoba Water Rights regulation, by guiding landowners to more effectively classify wetlands for registering or licensing of wetland drainage projects. It also supports the recent announcement by the Manitoba government on the GROW trust.
