Property Ownership

We own lake front property. Does our property extend to the water's edge?


No it usually does not. The ownership of lake front property ends at the "high water mark". The "High Water Mark" is usually interpreted as point marking the maximum elevaton that the lake has known to rise to. The high water mark along the shoreline of Turtle Lake is usually marked as the top of the "ice push" that is generally found along the shoreline of Turtle Lake. The area that exists between the water's edge and the "High Water Mark" is the property of the province.




What are our options if our property is flooding every spring?


If you want to do "earth work" on your property, such as adding fill or drainage ditching, you must have permits from the appropriate Rural Muncipality with juristion over your property. RM of Mervin 1-306-845-2045 RM of Parkland 1-306-342-2015 RM of Kivimaa-Moonlight Bay 1-306-845-3336

Our shoreline is eroding because of high water levels. What can we do?


The property line, of lake front property, ends at the "high water mark" or the of the ice push berm that surrounds most of the shoreline on Turtle Lake. The province controls the shoreline between the high water mark and the waters' edge and any alteration of the shore line by adding or removing sand, soil, rocks, plants etc requires a permit from the province.
