Battle Creek


Apportionable flows were calculated for Battle Creek at Alberta-Saskatchewan border (station 11AB117).

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 principle of equitable sharing in the Master Agreement on Apportionment, Saskatchewan's share of apportionable flows on the Battle Creek is 75% to enable the use of the waters by Saskatchewan and still fulfill Canada's commitments to deliver 50% of the Milk River into the USA. Battle Creek feeds into the Milk River in Saskatchewan.

Alberta has always met their delivery requirement throughout the entire data record.

You can copy and paste flow data presented below into a spreadsheet and word processing file.  You can also download a MS Excel file from the right side bar.
