Cold Lake


Apportionable flows are estimated at the outlet of Cold Lake (station 06AF001).

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 68.4% of Cold Lake outlet's apportionable flows. The 50% general formula is adjusted to consider that some of the basin that flows into Cold Lake is within Saskatchewan. This adjustment ensures that both provinces get their equitable share, an important principle in the Agreement.

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

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