Outflow Increasing from Manitoba’s Shellmouth Reservoir as part of Normal Spring Operation

Outflow from Manitoba’s Shellmouth Reservoir will be increasing today (Mon), as part of its normal spring operation.

This will result in a two to three-foot increase on levels along the Assiniboine River from the Shellmouth Dam to Russell, and a one to two-foot increase from Russell to Brandon.

The outflow will go to one-thousand cubic feet per second from 25 cubic feet per second, but water level increases will diminish as the river moves downstream from Brandon.

Manitoba Infrastructure’s Hydrologic Forecast Centre will continue to monitor conditions on the upper Assiniboine River, as well as downstream river levels.
