Water Levels

For river levels on the Saugeen River (current and historical data - Station #5) or Teeswater River (Station #2) - please see Environment Canada  This is a map link.  Simply enter Ontario, Canada and narrow down the pins on the map to either the Saugeen River  (Station 5) or the Teeswater River, (Station #2). 


The Saugeen River is the third largest river system in Southern Ontario at approximately 198km in length.  From the headwaters in the Dundalk area to the Town of Southampton where it empties into Lake Huron, it falls a a total of 1,158 feet - a distance almost equivalent to the height of the Empire State Building!

The Saugeen River is one of the most popular canoe routes in Southern Ontario, the majority of which passes through private land.  The route itself begins officially in the Town of Hanover, although there are many other locations where one can put in and canoe or kayak for the day.

Saugeen Conservation has over 20 automated gauges across the watershed that monitor water conditions and levels.

Graphical presentation of real time levels at Port Elgin (station#02FC001) and Walkerton (station #02FC002) can be found by visiting the Environment Canada website.

Please respect the Saugeen River Canoe Route. 

Take only photographs and leave only footprints, or in this case, paddle strokes!
