Lizard Creek (LIZ006)

Temperature readings are taken at 1-hour intervals at Lizard Creek (LIZ006) upstream of the Mount Fernie Provincial Campground but downstream of Island Lake as part of Elk River Alliance's Hydrometric program. Over time, water temperature data can be used to understand the effects of climate change on the Elk River and its tributaries.
