Pipestone Creek


Apportionable flows are calculated for Pipestone Creek at the Saskatchewan-Manitoba border.

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 Pipestone Creek.

Saskatchewan has always met their delivery requirements throughout the entire data record. This creek was only recently added to calculate apportionable flows on an interim basis to determine whether the creek should be monitored on an on-going basis.

Recorded flows at Pipestone Creek near the Saskatchewan border (Environment Canada - Water Survey of Canada's station 05NG024) are used to compute apportionable flows at the border.

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.
