The Canadian Environmental Sustainability Indicators (CESI) program provides data and information to track Canada's performance on key environmental sustainability issues. The Water Quantity indicator classifies yearly water quantity for Canada's 25 drainage regions as high, normal or low for 2001-2010. Water quantity classifications are determined by comparing daily water levels or flows to daily normal values for 1978-2007 for each water quantity monitoring station in a drainage region. Information is provided to Canadians in a number of formats including: static and interactive maps, charts and graphs, HTML and CSV data tables and downloadable reports. See supplementary documentation for data sources and details on how those data were collected and how the indicator was calculated.
