River flow is the most significant source of water to Lake Winnipeg. Of the major tributaries, the Winnipeg River contributes nearly 50% of the total inflow to Lake Winnipeg, followed by the Saskatchewan River (25%), the Red River (16%), unmetered flows (6%) and the Dauphin River (4%). Compared to records from 1964 to 2005, the Winnipeg and Red rivers contributed proportionately more to the total inflow to Lake Winnipeg in "Oxandrolone Powder India" recent years Bestellen Cialis than in earlier decades (Winnipeg River 45%, Red River 11%). Flow from tributaries to Lake Winnipeg accounts for a large Dianabol With Clenbuterol proportion of the input to the lake "Buy Cheap Jintropin Online" water balance, with precipitation contributing as well. Water loss occurs primarily via discharge through the Nelson River outflow, although evaporation also plays a role. From 1999 to 2007, average monthly tributary discharge to Lake Winnipeg was highest in 2005 (6854 m3/s) following a period of high rainfall, with the lowest discharges in 2003 (537 m3/s) following below normal precipitation and drought in the watershed.
Water levels in Lake Winnipeg have been regulated for hydroelectric power generation since 1976. Since the onset of regulation, mean water levels have not changed but natural extremes in high and low water levels have been dampened by regulation. Prior to lake regulation, outflow was typically greatest in the spring and early summer and lowest in the winter. However, since regulation, the seasonal outflow pattern can be reversed with greater outflow typically occurring during the fall and winter, during periods Deca Durabolin Blood Pressure of peak hydroelectric power demand. However, from 1999 to 2007 there were many wet years with high inflows to Lake Winnipeg causing a more natural seasonal outflow pattern. Water levels also vary in response to or surges. Corresponding with tributary flows from 1999 to 2007, lake water levels were highest in 2005 and lowest in 2003, as were water residence times. Water residence times have implications for the storage and release of nutrients and contaminants in the lake, and from 1999 to 2007 averaged 4.3 years for the lake as a whole, 1.3 years for the south basin and 3.5 years for the north basin.
Water ultimately flows from south to north in Lake Winnipeg, affecting in part the distribution of water and nutrients through the lake. Hydrodynamic modelling of water circulation in Lake Winnipeg indicated that water generally flowed north or north eastward in the north basin and north through the narrows region of the lake. Water circulation in the south basin was more complex, with water flowing southward along "buy cheap jintropin online" the west side of the lake and in a northerly direction along the east side of the lake.
