Manitoba Infrastructure’s Hydrologic Forecast Centre reports the outflow from Shellmouth Reservoir will be increasing Monday to 1,000 cubic feet per second (cfs) from 25 cfs as part of normal spring operation.

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