The Title 3 Land data delineates areas protected by the Stream and Floodplain Protection Plan, which aims to protect the region's health and public safety by reducing flood and landslide hazards, controlling soil erosion, and reducing pollution of the region's waterways. This data specifically delineates areas impacted by Title 3 for the following purposes: 1. protect against flooding, 2. enhance water quality in the region's streams, rivers, and wetlands, and 3. protect regionally significant fish and wildlife habitat areas.

Routed regional river centerline data layer using the polylineM feature format with measures in kilometers. The stream route layer includes stream locations where, on the basis of the raster model used to create the data layer, surface water may have once existed, but is now piped, culverted or thought to be buried. Likewise the layer includes centerlines through water bodies, i.e. portions of streams that connect with larger bodies of water such as wetlands, ponds, etc. Thus many portions of a stream route feature are included primarily to complete the centerline network for routing purposes.

This geospatial dataset is a hydrologic unit boundary layer for the Watershed (10-digit) level. The dataset is a subset of the 5th level (field) hydrologic unit boundaries from the Watershed Boundary Dataset (WBD) layer for Oregon. Hydrologic units in the data set represent drainage areas delineated to the 5th level drainage systems. Their boundaries are defined by hydrographic and topographic criteria that delineate an area of land upstream from a specific point on a river, stream, or similar surface waters. Boundaries within the this data set were delineated by Pacific Northwest (PNW) Hydrography Framework Partners and Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) to meet state requirements and to contribute to...

This geospatial dataset is a hydrologic unit boundary layer for the Sub-basin (8-digit) level. The dataset is a subset of the 4th level (8-digit) hydrologic unit boundaries of the Watershed Boundary Dataset (WBD) layer for Oregon. It was created by dissolving boundaries from the finer resolution hydrologic units (those of the 5th or 10-digit level) to create these broader boundaries. Boundaries within the this data set were delineated by Pacific Northwest (PNW) Hydrography Framework Partners and Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) to meet state requirements and to contribute to the national WBD repository. To meet these goals, the WBD must adhere to the "Federal Standards for Delineation of Hydrologic...

ScienceBase brings together the best information it can find about USGS researchers and offices to show connections to publications, projects, and data. We are still working to improve this process and information is by no means complete. If you don't see everything you know is associated with you, a colleague, or your office, please be patient while we work to connect the dots. Feel free to contact sciencebase@usgs.gov.
