Unusual water feature near Brandon, Manitoba, Canada. No idea what it is. Pretty, though.

Perhaps a wastewater treatment lagoon type thingie?

A reservoir of some kind?

Maybe a pool used during mineral/chemical processing?

Some kind of fishery?

Trout pond, eh? Trout farming is apparently big business in rural Manitoba.

vertical submersible mixers anyone?
used to prevent stagntation/induce sediment mixing/oxygenate water.

judging by the displacement and volume of wake, its a pretty big setup.

What you see here is Brandon sewage lagoon four. According to one website:

"At the sewage-lagoon site, windmill-like aerators, costing about $10,000 apiece, are supposed to stir up the air so that lagoon bacteria requiring oxygen for survival will more easily break down the organic parts of the [waste]."

The waste, by the way, is urine from pregnant horses, used by a division of Wyeth pharmaceuticals to create the drug Premarin (PREgnant MARes' urINe).
