Rush Lake Creek Sub Watershed
Swift Current Creek flows through the city of Swift Current through Swift Current Reservoir, which is upstream of the city. Water can be diverted to the Rush Lake Creek basin through the Swift Current main canal, which starts at the Swift Current reservoir and flows to Highfield Dam. This diversion can have an impact on both water quality and quantity in Highfield reservoir, Herbert reservoir and Reed Lake in the Rush Lake basin. Therefore, even though the Rush Lake basin is part of the Old Wives Lake Watershed it has long been included with the Swift Current Creek Watershed for planning and management purposes.
