Base Hydrography Point Events

The Base Hydrography Point Event layer contains hydrographic point features representing the locations of water or water related features captured through the 1:20000 Provincial Base Mapping Project, the 1:50000 Resource Access Mapping Program, the Alberta Vegetation Inventory Program and the Federal Government National Topographic Data Base 1:50000 mapping. This layer includes artificially created hydrographic point events. Included in the layer are major dams, minor dams, and water control devices. Information licensed under the Open Government Licence – Alberta. 

Dam​ - Major/Minor

Dam is a man made structure across a river/stream for holding back and storing water for various purposes. Major Dams have specific names, and/or a named water body behind the dam. Minor Dams do not have specific names, and/or a named waterbody behind the dam.

Water Control Device

Water Control Device is a device on a ditch, canal or river for controlling the water flow or level, without significant storage. Examples are sluice gates and weirs.
