NPCA Large Scale Surface Water Inventory Hydrographic Features
GIS layers reflecting large scale (1:2k, 1:10k) surface water features of the Niagara Watershed such as waterbodies (lakes, ponds, reservoirs, large rivers, marshland), rivers, streams, creeks, ditches, hydronet basins and catchments, watersheds and subwatersheds. These data help identify and map surface water interactions with water and wastewater systems and other municipal infrastructure (storm water systems, culverts, bridges).
The data is licensed to Brock University faculty, staff and students for teaching and research purposes only and requires the user to sign a Generic license agreement.
Open layers are available through the NPCA HydroServer (see Related Information below).
