Miami River

The Village of Harrison Hot Springs is drained by the Miami River that has its headwaters in Agassiz, behind the Research Station (PARC) and its outfall through the dike, just past the Harrison Resort hotel.

Harrison Lake drains out through Harrison River to the Fraser at Harrison Mills so the Miami is a tributary of the Fraser.

The Miami River’s Watershed (17 square kilometres) also includes Agassiz,  and Bear/Green Mountains.

The Miami River is officially gazetted as “Miami Creek” but locally it is referred to as the “Miami River

Miama” is almost certainly the original historical name for the waterway, since Miami, Florida, had not yet become a well-known place when the plan was drawn. A new subdivision plan in 1926 has the “Miami” spelling now in use.
