Rossland Water Supply

I’ve been working on some graphical presentation of the water storage for Rossland, and one of the best tools is Google Apps. It can create a timeline graph with annotations for comments. I started collecting data last year for this project and now that Ophir Reservoir is almost full, I think it is time to go public with this data. Entering data for this graph is as simple as measuring the drop in water level from full for the two reservoirs, something that is done at least weekly, and a spreadsheet calculates the approximate percentage of full storage that is available in each reservoir and immediately publishes this to the graph. A link to the raw data as an html file is available here.

This is a work in progress and will be published on the City website soon.
