Object Name: WHSE_WATER_MANAGEMENT.WLS_BC_POD_DRINKNG_SOURCES_SP
Short Name: WLSBCPDDRN
Comments: BC POD DRINKNG SOURCES is a province-wide SDE layer displaying the location of water rights points of diversion for drinking water systems, as licensed under the Water Act. In the context of this layer, Drinking Water Systems means two or more water licences for domestic purpose at a single POD; and/or a water licence(s) for any other purpose indicating a water diversion and distribution system supplying water directly to residences and/or buildings for human consumption. This layer is a spatially de-normalized version of WLS_BC_POD_DRINKING_SOURCES_SVW.
|Column Name||Short Name||Data Type||Data Precision||Comments|
|BC_POD_DRINKING_SOURCE_ID||BCPDDRNKNG||NUMBER||18||The BC POD DRINKING SOURCE ID is the unique identifier of a drinking water point of diversion that is associated to a Water Act licence. This identifier is not persistent.|
|STRM_NAME||STRM_NAME||VARCHAR2||30||STRM NAME describes the name of the stream the point of diversion is marked upon.|
|STATUS||STATUS||VARCHAR2||2||STATUS is the status of license creation. A = applicaiton for license, L = License granted , AL = both License issued and application for license on point of diversion, I = inactive|
|PNTS_CODE||PNTS_CODE||VARCHAR2||12||PNTS CODE describes a unique identifier for the point of diversion at a branch on the stream. An example of the PNTS CODE is PD22935|
|LICENCE_COUNT||LCNCCNT||NUMBER||22||LICENCE COUNT indicates the number of licences that are associated to the POINT OF DIVERSION for the associated LICENCE PURPOSE.|
|LICENCE_PURPOSE||LCNCPRPS||VARCHAR2||25||LICENCE PURPOSE indicates the intended purpose of the water being diverted by the POINT OF DIVERSION. For example, DOMESTIC indicates that the water will be used for human consumption.|
|FEATURE_CODE||FTRCD||VARCHAR2||10||FEATURE CODE contains a value based on the Canadian Council of Surveys and Mapping's (CCSM) system for classification of geographic features|
|GEOMETRY||GEOMETRY||SDO_GEOMETRY||1||GEOMETRY is the column used to reference the spatial coordinates defining the feature.|
|OBJECTID||OBJECTID||NUMBER||38||OBJECTID is a required attribute of feature classes and object classes in a geodatabase.|
|SE_ANNO_CAD_DATA||BLOB||4000||SE_ANNO_CAD_DATA is a binary column used by spatial tools to store annotation, curve features and CAD data when using the SDO_GEOMETRY storage data type.|
