From the Introduction

"The purpose of this database is to formulate a hydrologic-geomorphologic data base of field measured parameters for streams and rivers of Ontario. The information for this data base was collected in conjunction with stream gauge stations (where ever possible). The intent of the data base is to provide a base-line tool for practitioners and agency personnel for the purposes of watershed planning, and monitoring, water course design, rehabilitation, compensation, review and management."

Useful for:

Aquatic researchers
Urban and rural planners
Geological researchers
Geographical studies
Wetlands researchers
Groundwater studies
