Water levels & flows

About 96% of the electricity we produce is clean, renewable power generated at 15 hydroelectric generating stations around the province of Manitoba. As part of our water management, water level and flow measurements are taken throughout waterways contributing to the hydroelectric system. These level readings are from hydrometric gauging stations managed by Manitoba Hydro and Water Survey of Canada.

The 14-day forecasts are estimates, and subject to change. Northern forecasts are broadcast on local radio stations at the beginning of every month.
