The project will provide a reliable water supply for the 4500 residents of the Willow Creek Basin, including the towns of Claresholm and Granum. It will also secure a water source for irrigated land and allow an expansion of the irrigated areas already served. The project will enhance fish and wildlife habitat, as well as create additional water-based recreational opportunities near the existing facilities at Willow Creek Provincial Park.
