Ontario has a comprehensive source water protection program that ensures drinking water safety from source to tap. This webpage provides an overview of the source water protection program, and contains links to municipality protection plans.
CoastRanger MS has been designed to explain the consequences that different management approaches have on coastal processes, natural environments and flood and coastal erosion risk. The software highlights the range of interests that need to be balanced on the coast and demonstrates the difficult decisions that have to be made in some areas. CoastRanger MS simulates typical real world scenarios and provides information on management approaches, defense types, coastal behaviour and legislation.
This is a source water protection project focused on evaluating the relationship between land-use practices and water quality in the St. Joseph River, a tributary of the western Lake Erie Basin.
The Lake Level Viewer is an interactive online visualization mapping tool that allows users to visualize lake level changes in the Great Lakes that range from six feet above to six feet below historical long-term average water levels, as well as potential shoreline and coastal impacts. This tool is intended to help communities plan for and adapt to climate change and the accompanying changes in lake water levels.
The USGS's Daily Streamflow Conditions dataset includes data on streamflow at 9,936 sites across the United States.
The Streams and Waterbodies of the United States data layer shows the location of water features throughout the United States, Puerto Rico, and U.S. Virgin Islands
The Groundwater Contours of Michigan dataset includes individual county datasets of the elevation of the water table (first water) encountered every 30 meter across the landscape.
Prospect-R is a web-based decision support tool that helps users determine the feasibility of floodplain restoration efforts. Prospect-R was developed specifically for the restoration of gravel pit mines on the Willamette River, but is ultimately intended to be used more broadly. Maintaining or restoring floodplains helps ensure that these floodplains are able to provide valuable ecosystem services. The connection between river channels and floodplains helps maintain water quality and regulate thermal regimes, which in turn impacts the life cycles of aquatic organisms.
