Analysis of near real-time data from the Water Survey of Canada against stream flow metrics developed by the River Forecast Centre. Key data available include: 1.) Comparison of current 7-day average stream flow as a percentage of historic median 7-day average stream flow over the same period of time 2.) Comparison of current 7-day average stream flow percentiles to drought indicator levels in the BC Drought Response Plan 3.) Time of data update

Additional Information

Purpose

This data was created to assess current stream flow conditions against historic flows and assist in monitoring hydrologic drought conditions across British Columbia

Data Quality

The data are collected in near-real-time by automated monitors at numerous remote locations and are unverified. The data are preliminary, and may be changed upon subsequent review. Some data may be wrong. It is not uncommon for individual water level recorders to give false readings, due to local conditions. They should be considered as reference values only, by which to evaluate the current readings. They should not be used for design or other purposes. Users of this data must accept all responsibility for the use and interpretation.

Lineage Statement
