Lake Manitoba update: Dec. 9, 2017

Lake Manitoba fell very slightly this week and now sits at 812.20 feet. Upstream Lake Winnipegosis fell to 832.35 feet. The gauge on the Waterhen River is still ice affected, so we still have no data on the current inflow to Lake Manitoba. Fairford flows are slightly lower this week at 7,911 cfs. The level of Lake St. Martin is down this week to 801.30 feet. Flow on the Whitemud River remains a trickle at 42 cfs. The Assiniboine flows are now 1,254 cfs at Holland and 1,448 cfs at Headingly. The Shellmouth Reservoir continues to drop and is now 1,397.97 feet.
