UPDATE: REAL TIME Water Levels on some southern Alberta Rivers (Environment Canada)

UPDATE: June 2 2013
We've had a break but a good deluge continues into today.  Below are some updated hydrographs for the Bow and Sheep rivers, and Cataract Creek.  The differentiation in character and nature of these graphs shows the differentiation in landscape and drainage management capacity.

Real-time Hydrometric Data from Environment Canada's website.  Within the more immediate vicinity of Calgary, the response of the rivers is dramatic.  Then there are the regulated flows with managed discharges.  Cataract Creek is the other extreme in the foothills, and a mostly undisturbed landscape, the flows are tempered and with less amplitude.  There are many other stations available throughout the province, and across the country.
