Lake Manitoba update: Sept. 6, 2017

The hydrometric gauges are back online after a prolonged outage. The dry weather continues and levels and flows continue to fall. Lake Manitoba has fallen to 812.66 feet and is now approaching the top end of its operating range (812.5 feet). Outflow at Fairford has fallen with the lake level, currently registering 8,935 cfs. Lake Winnipegosis fell to 833.23 feet and flow on the Waterhen River is down to 8,476 cfs. Lake St. Martin fell further this week and now sits at 802.56 feet. Flow on the Assiniboine is  533 cfs at Holland; there is an odd gauge reading at Headingly (1,031 cfs). That may be a gauge error
