The Monnery subwatershed reaches to the Saskatchewan border. Within the 125,537 hectares of Dry Mixedwood area is County of Vermilion River and Municipal District of Bonnyville; the urban communities of Lloydminster, Streamstown, Tulliby Lake, Blackfoot, as well as the Makoo 120 Indian Reserve, which is under the jurisdiction of Onion Lake Cree Nation. Many people farm within the Monnery subwatershed, as the soil is highly suitable for agriculture. Oil and gas development also occurs within the subwatershed. More studies of the watershed are necessary, but existing studies suggest that the Monnery is fairly healthy.
