Saskatoon is fortunate to be situated on the South Saskatchewan River. The river provides an abundant source of fresh water that starts in the Bow and Oldman rivers in Alberta.
The treatment of water and waste water require significant energy and chemical inputs, generating environmental and financial concerns as the city grows.
