Assiniboine River


Apportionable flows are calculated for the Assiniboine River at Kamsack (station 05MD004).

The black bar shows the amount of apportionable flows that were required to be delivered by Saskatchewan to Manitoba.  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, Manitoba's share is 50% of the apportionable flows of the Assiniboine River.

Saskatchewan has always met their delivery requirements throughout the entire data record.

 

Apportionment flows have been computed since 2006 although flows have been recorded for longer. 

Apportionment flows have been computed since 2006 although flows have been recorded for longer.  You can copy and paste flow data presented below into a spreadsheet or word processing file.  You can also download a MS Excel file from the right side bar menu.
