The Water Survey of Canada (WSC) is the national authority responsible for standardized water resource data in Canada. WSC is a function of Environment Canada.
WSC makes available near real-time hydrometric data, including discharge rates, water levels, and in some instances, temperature, for four stations in the Cowichan Watershed. We have included these four, and one station on the Chemainus River.
To refresh the charts, you must click once on each chart. Otherwise, what is displayed is fairly recent data.
WSC doesn’t provide a data feed or permit a continuous online connection with its data. With each new session, the WSC system requires a user to consent to WSC’s usage agreement, and it times a user out after a brief period of non-use.
Each chart represents data from 01 Jan 2009 to 31 Dec 2010. You can change the dates, and explore other features of the WSC facility once you are on the WSC website.
