Water Reliability Scale:Reliable QuestionableUnreliable
3
The reliability scale is intended to offer a general idea of each source's reliability, although actual conditions may vary considerably from season to season. Reliable water is a definite source in terms of strategy, Questionable is fairly dependable, Unreliable shouldn't be counted on. Always carry enough water to reach a reliable source. The historical data well help in determining chances of finding water at these spots, and your data is crucial to developing better data on water availablity. Please share any notes on water you find in the field. This document template has been adapted from the Oregon Desert Trail resources.

Please don't delete any data, just add your observations so we get several sets of data per water source. If you would like to make global changes to the document, please download and make a copy for yourself.
