On October 1, 2012, the Saskatchewan Watershed Authority became apart of the Water Security Agency of Saskatchewan. This new organization has been established to lead the province's water management needs. The mission of the new organiztaion is to integrate all aspects of water management to ensure sustainable water supplies, safe drinking water, safe and effective infrastructure, protection of water quality and aquatic habitats.

As a result, the Agency is responsible for the allocation of ground and surface water inventory and analysis of water sources and the administration and control of all water infrastructure including operations and planning and the maintenance of provincially owned water management infrastructure.

It is also responsible to manage watershed and aquifer planning, to develop partnerships and projects that help provide healthy watersheds and provide assessment and monitoring practices that ensure the protection and restoration of the province's water sources.
