Since 1999 a group of local rural municipalities and conservation groups in southeastern Saskatchewan have been developing watershed plans in conjunction with the Saskatchewan Watershed Authority. In partnership, the three local sub watershed committees; Four Creeks, Pipestone and, Antler Watershed Advisory Committees have formed a basin-wide organization know as the Lower Souris River Watershed Committee Inc.

The Upper Souris Watershed Association is an independent, non-profit organization that has been developed to implement the key action items from the Watershed Protection Plan. The USWA was incorporated as a non-profit on February 24, 2010. The watershed protection plan has been developed under the leadership of Saskatchewan Watershed Authority by holding meetings with local watershed advisory committees.
