Shellmouth Reservoir Increasing its Outflow Due to Recent Heavy Rains

Outflow from the Shellmouth Reservoir will be increasing due to recent heavy rains.

The outflow will be increased from 52 cubic feet per second to 500 cubic feet per second.

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

Water levels are expected to remain within the river banks, however, river users should be cautious.
