    Dale Asked about 1 year ago

    Hi Dale, thanks for your question!  Rio Tinto emails a weekly update called Flow Facts that outlines the anticipated changes in flow from the Skins Lake Spillway.  If you would like to register to receive the weekly update, please email NechakoReservoirUpdates@riotinto.com

    Rio Tinto operates the Summer Temperature Management Program (STMP) which aids in cooling the temperature of the Nechako River to less than 20C at Finmore to help salmon survival and spawning.  As part of the STMP, spillway discharge is increased on average July 10th.   Between July 15-August 20 spillway discharge will fluctuate between 14.2 m3/s and 453.1 m3/s in response to weather forecasts.  If you would like to monitor spillway discharge in real time, Environment Canada has a link on their website https://wateroffice.ec.gc.ca/mainmenu/real_time_data_index_e.html.  The Skins Lake Spillway station is 08JA023, you can search either through a list or on the map.  Please let us know if these options to monitor river levels throughout the year help you.
