Stream Name

Stream Name - As defined in the Water Act, "a stream includes a natural watercourse or source of water supply, whether usually containing water or not, groundwater, and a lake, river, creek, spring, ravine, swamp and gulch."

  • Field is not case sensitive (e.g. Mission, MISSION or mission all display the same results).

  • If the exact stream name is unknown, enter the first few characters. All streams which begin with those characters will be displayed. For example, entering "Miss" displays "Mission Creek", "Missioner Creek", "Mission Ponds", "Mission Slough", "Missouri Gulch", etc.

  • Duplicate stream names may occur throughout the province; note the District/Precinct field to confirm the location.
