Climate-resilient livestock surface water in the Cariboo

These resources summarize activities and findings from projects to develop livestock surface water and forage risk assessment tools.

The 2017 report includes a methodology for assessing risk to surface water within range units, which is outlined step-by-step. The report tests the risk assessment process on a select set of range units.

The 2019 report provides in-depth cases studies of three specific range units, identifies the water resource challenges, proposes water development solutions and provides high-level cost estimates for proposed water developments.

The 2020 report summarizes the details of the three livestock water developments that were installed.

A series of range unit maps can be used by range officers and producers in the Cariboo to inform future surface water planning. Each range unit has a set of seven maps, displaying:

  • Reference evaporation greater than 2 hectares
  • Water resource buffer
  • Ortho overlay
  • Primary range
  • Lakes
  • Reference evaporation greater than 5 hectares
  • Range development
