Find Stream Level Information
Stream level data is available for a number of streams across the province. Stream level data can be accessed from June through September, and is also available for download.
What is this data used for?
Those who hold a Water Withdrawal for Irrigation Purposes Permit can use this tool to confirm the water level in Island streams, and to determine whether they may legally draw water for irrigation purposes. This information is also made available for members of the public who have an interest in stream levels in the province
Instructions for Permit Holders
The utility will show two lines on the displayed graph for the specific stream selected. The blue line represents the water level of the stream, while the red line represents the maintenance flow level. If the current water level displayed on the graph is below the red line, no irrigation from the stream is permitted.
