North Saskatchewan River

Apportionable flows are calculated at the North Saskatchewan River near Deer Creek (station 05EF001).

North Saskatchewan River

 

The black bar shows the amount of apportionable flows that were required to be delivered by Alberta to Saskatchewan.  The white bar shows the flow surplus amounts that were delivered in excess of required flows.  The combined black (provincial share) and white (surplus) stacked bars show the total recorded flows. On the y-axis, the number following the "e" in the Scientific Notation shows how many zeros should be placed to the right of the decimal place.

 

Under the Master Agreement on Apportionment, Saskatchewan's Share is 50% of the North Saskatchewan River's apportionable flows. Alberta has always met their delivery requirement throughout the entire data record.

Flow data presented below can be copied and pasted into a spreadsheet or word processing file.  You can always download a MS Excel file from the right side bar.
