In 1904, Mr. Sauder began a career in irrigation which was to last until his death in 1971. Through his untiring efforts, thousands of acres of dry prairie lands of southern Alberta now prosper under irrigation. In 1906, he instituted the first regular hydrometric surveys in southern Alberta and Saskatchewan. His dedication to his work earned him recognition by the Engineering Institute of Canada, the Agricultural Institute of Canada and the University of Alberta.
