Welcome to the British Columbia Drought Information Portal.

Drought is a recurrent feature of climate involving a deficiency of precipitation over an extended period of time, resulting in a water shortage. The British Columbia Drought Information Portal was created as a single source geographic drought level information system for British Columbians. The application uses multiple embedded apps to provide information on provincial drought levels, angling closures, historical drought time-lapse maps and other drought related information. Provincial drought levels are updated by the Water Management Branch, Ministry of Forests, Lands, Natural Resource Operations and Rural Development on an as needed basis.

Please visit the BC Drought Information Portal or https://www2.gov.bc.ca/gov/content/environment/air-land-water/water/drought-flooding-dikes-dams/drought-information for the latest BC drought information.
