Niverville, MB – July 18th, 2017 – BSI Insurance has donated $1000 to Tourond Creek Ducks Unlimited for maintenance of the dam from the annual overland flooding that occurs. Ducks Unlimited does fundraising to keep the project on the 311 Highway close to St Mary's road as a beautiful wetlands and green space. The project often gets damaged by flooding and spring runoff. Wetlands are a natural filter to remove contaminants from overland flooding and field runoff. This keeps pollution out of our rivers and lakes and ultimately out of our drinking water. Ducks Unlimited was also a huge part of the lagoon rebuild of Niverville's lagoon revitalization project which ultimately saved millions of dollars for the tax payers of Niverville.
