Updated Forecast for Second Crest

  • Flows on the Assiniboine River west of Brandon have been increasing as water moves through the system. 

  • The revised forecast for a second crest in Brandon calls for peak flows of 34,000 to 36,000 cubic feet per second (cfs) between tomorrow and July 13.  Peak flows are expected to last for a day or two before gradually declining.

  • The revised forecast for a second crest at the Portage Diversion calls for peak flows of 46,000 to 47,500 cfs between July 14 and 16.  Peak flows are expected to last for a day or two before gradually declining.

  • The forecast information from yesterday was fine-tuned based on additional flow measurements on the Assiniboine River last night and this morning.

  • Existing flood protection along the Assiniboine River is expected to be adequate for the forecast second crest.
