To collect long-term hydrometric data on small drainage basins (<500 km2) and provide baseline information for future developments (e.g., culverts, fisheries concerns, gas pipelines, hydroelectric, and quartz and placer mining developments). The network incorporates key stations representing the streamflow characteristics of different hydrologic regions. In the late 1970s and early 1980s, 40 manual crest gauge stations were discontinued when the network was converted to continuous monitoring.
Number of sites: 105 total sites, 19 active sites
Parameter measured: Hydrological - Other, Hydrological - Streamflow discharge, Hydrological - Surface water level
Period of record: 1970 to present
Sampling frequencies: Continuous Seasonal, Periodically, Periodically Seasonal
Data availability: Historical data from 1975 to 2004 are available online. Data since 2004 is maintained internally by the Water Resources Branch.
