Forsyth Creek Hydrometric

This dataset contains hydrometric and water temperature data for Forsyth Creek Hydrometric Station. This site is monitored by Elk River Alliance as part of the Elk River Watershed Collaborative Monitoring Program as well as the Living Lakes Canada Columbia Basin Water Monitoring Framework. Forsyth Creek was selected for monitoring as it is Westslope cutthroat trout breeding habitat. Forsyth Creek is also glacier fed. The data is being collected to track the effects of climate change and other impacts on Columbia Basin water supply and support community climate adaptation. Monitoring has been implemented on this site. Data will be added soon.
