The Nipawin Hydro Station spillway will be opened tonight.

SaskPower says the emergency release is necessary due to debris jamming the station, thanks to this spring’s major ice jam upstream.

The spillway will be opened at 8:30 tonight, which will mean an increase in volume and flow downstream of the station for about an hour.

SaskPower says people operating boats downstream should exercise extra caution during that time.

Water levels at Tobin Lake are expected to increase by about an inch.
