In 1982 there was a Saskatchewan Wheat Pool grain elevator in Rush Lake, Saskatchewan. It consisted of an integrated elevator/annex, with an old grain elevator as an annex/loading point, and a balloon annex.

Today there are no grain elevators in Rush Lake.

Rush Lake is about 30 km east of Swift Current, SK.

In the 1950s Rush Lake had four grain elevators. The above aerial photo, courtesy of the University of Saskatchewan, shows a Pioneer elevator, perhaps a National elevator, another Pioneer, and a Saskatchewan Wheat Pool elevator.
