Hydrometeorologic Data

Regional hydrometeorologic data networks

BC Hydro's Hydrology group manages a network of over 150 automated, real-time reporting climate, snow and surface water stations. Our teams use the data from these stations for reservoir management.

The data posted here includes up to four days of historic data. The data is based on automated readings and is not quality-controlled which means that from time to time the data could be inaccurate. Data is provided as information only and BC Hydro does not guarantee its accuracy.

For more detailed reservoir and river level information, including customizable and historical information from the Water Survey of Canada, see our Reservoir levels section.
