McDonald Creek Hydrometric

This dataset contains hydrometric and water temperature data for McDonald Creek hydrometric station. This site is part of the Living Lakes Canada Columbia Basin Water Monitoring Framework program. McDonald Creek was selected for monitoring because it is an important stream for fish. There are few active stations in the Lower Arrow Lakes valley so this supports improved geographic coverage of the network. The data is being collected to track the impacts of climate change on Columbia Basin water supply and support community climate adaptation. Monitoring has been implemented on this site.
