Why (and how!) Do We Measure Water Levels and Flows In Our Rivers and Lakes Across Canada

Elizabeth is a water resources engineer who loves water and the outdoors. She has over 10 years experience working at the National Hydrological Service, which runs the national hydrometric program called Water Survey of Canada. This program is responsible for collecting, analyzing and publishing water quantity data for thousands of rivers and lakes across Canada. Water Survey of Canada has been doing this for over a 100 years (since 1908)! Even though the reasons why we measure water levels haven’t changed too much; how we do this has!

This presentation will introduce the basics of Canada’s hydrometric program and network, and why and how we measure water across Canada.
