Flow increased during irrigation season by water from St. Mary Canal which diverts water from the 
St. Mary River near Babb (station number 05017500) into the Milk River. Flow is regulated by Fresno 
Reservoir (station number 06136500), two reservoirs in Lodge Creek basin in Saskatchewan (station 
numbers 06144260 and 06144360 and four reservoirs in Frenchman River basin in Saskatchewan. There are 
many small dams for the diversion of irrigation canals upstream.
