Used for reviewing water use proposals to help identify streams that have allocation restrictions on them.
Not for making legal decisions. This data has been derived from source datasets. Some water allocation restriction points did not match with existing stream network lines resulting in some restricted streams not being identified and other streams being falsely identified. Estimated accuracy of 95%. This dataset is based on water allocation restriction point data from a snapshot in time. It is only periodically updated. This dataset is based off of a stream network and does not include water bodies. In place of waterbodies are 'skeleton' lines connecting inflow and outflow through a waterbody. Further research is required to identify the exact restriction status of a stream.

|Column Name||Short Name||Data Type||Data Precision||Comments|
|LINEAR_FEATURE_ID||LNR_FTR_ID||NUMBER||18||LINEAR FEATURE ID is a primary Key to link to stream segments in WHSE_BASEMAPPING.FWA_STREAM_NETWORKS_SP as a one to one join. This is maintained by business users. E.g., 831792750|
|RESTRICTION_ID_LIST||RSTRCTN_DT||VARCHAR2||200||RESTRICTION ID LIST is a list of one or more restriction IDs of stream restriction points downstream from the stream segment. The RESTRICTION_IDs correspond with RESTRICTION_IDs in WHSE_WATER_MANAGEMENT.WLS_WATER_RESTRICTION_LOC_SVW. E.g., RS34144|
|PRIMARY_RESTRICTION_CODE||PRMRY_RSTD||VARCHAR2||12||PRIMARY RESTRICTION CODE indicates the type of restriction point downstream from the stream segment. E.g., FR - Fully Recorded; FR_EXC - Fully Recorded Except; PWS - Possible Water Shortage; RNW - Refused No Water; OR - Office Reserve; UNSPECIFIED - type of restriction not specified.|
|SECONDARY_RESTRICTION_CODES||SCNDRY_RSS||VARCHAR2||30||SECONDARY RESTRICTION CODES is a list of additional types of water restrictions downstream from the stream segment. E.g., FR - Fully Recorded; FR_EXC - Fully Recorded Except; PWS - Possible Water Shortage; RNW - Refused No Water; OR - Office Reserve; UNSPECIFIED - type of restriction not specified.|
|FWA_WATERSHED_CODE||FW_WTRSHDD||VARCHAR2||143||FWA WATERSHED CODE is a 143 character code derived using a hierarchy coding scheme. Approximately identifies where a particular stream is located within the province.|
|WATERSHED_GROUP_CODE||WTRSHD_GRD||VARCHAR2||4||WATERSHED GROUP CODE is the watershed group code associated with the polygon.|
|GNIS_NAME||GNIS_NM||VARCHAR2||80||GNIS NAME is the BCGNIS (BC Geographical Names Information System) name associated with the GNIS feature id (an English name was used where available, otherwise another language was selected).|
|STREAM_ORDER||STRM_RDR||NUMBER||10||STREAM ORDER is the calculated modified Strahler order.|
|STREAM_MAGNITUDE||STRM_MGNTE||NUMBER||10||STREAM MAGNITUDE is the calculated magnitude.|
|FEATURE_CODE||FEATURE_CD||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.|
|FEATURE_LENGTH_M||FEAT_LEN||NUMBER||19||FEATURE_LENGTH_M is the system calculated length or perimeter of a geometry in meters|
