Manitoba Draws Down The Shellmouth Reservoir

Manitoba reports the water outflow from the Shellmouth Reservoir will be increased, starting today. It’s part of the annual fall/winter draw-down to make room for anticipated spring run-off from the upper Assiniboine River. It will result in a 2-to-3 foot level increase from the Shellmouth Dam to Russell, and a 1-to-2 foot level increase from Russell to Brandon. The province adds it will continue to monitor conditions in the upper Assiniboine River, as well as downstream river levels.
