Red Deer River SK/MB


Apportionable flows are calculated for the Red Deer River near Erwood, Saskatchewan that is slightly upstream of the Saskatchewan-Manitoba border (station 05LC001).

The black bar shows the amount of apportionable flows that were required to be delivered by Saskatchewan to Manitoba.  Thewhite 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 Red Deer River slightly upstream of the Saskatchewan-Manitoba border.

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

Apportionable flows have only been calculated 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.
