In the White River basin, water demand has increased with human development. Water development projects impact White River hydrology and sediment transport which can, in turn, affect resident Colorado pikeminnow populations. The objectives for this study were: 1) to compile historical biological, hydrological and physical data for the White River, 2) to analyze physical, chemical and biological features of the White River important to endangered fishes and, 3) to identify parameters for long-term monitoring to insure these features are maintained. We examined physical, chemical and biological characteristics during three development periods in the UCRB: early (1895-1945), middle (1946-1984) and post Taylor Draw...

The Oregon Fish Passage Barrier Data Standard (OFPBDS) dataset contains barriers to fish passage in Oregon watercourses. Barriers include the following types of natural or artificial structures: bridges, cascades, culverts, dams, debris jams, fords, natural falls, tide gates, and weirs. The OFPBDS dataset does not include structures which are not associated with in-stream features (such as dikes, levees or berms). Barriers are structures which do, or potentially may, impede fish movement and migration. Barriers can be known to cause complete or partial blockage to fish passage, or they can be completely passable, or they may have an unknown passage status. The third publication of the OFPBDS dataset (Version 3)...
Dam construction and water diversions along the Colorado River during the twentieth century have altered the downstream estuarine ecosystem. Although it is clear that the ecosystem has changed, a lack of pre-impact studies has made it challenging to determine the magnitude and direction of change. By using a paleontological approach, we can retrospectively estimate ecological conditions in the estuary from before dam construction, particularly for benthic organisms with preservable hard parts, such as the shells of bivalve mollusks. Here, for the first time, we quantify differences in evenness, richness, taxonomic similarity, and rank-order abundance between the bivalve community living in the estuary today and...

StreamNet's Potential Fish Passage Barrier dataset captures both natural and man-made in stream features that have the potential to block fish passage (culverts, dams, debris jams, cascades, falls, etc.). Where information exists, fish passage ability is captured. This dataset is maintained and updated on an annual or semi-annual basis. The JUNE, 2012 publication dataset includes almost 60,000 features across the states of Washington, Oregon, Idaho, western Montana and California. Where possible, all barrier locations are georeferenced to StreamNet's regionally standardized routed hydrography layer (MSHv3) enabling comparison and analysis of barrier locations within the context of StreamNet's larger data holdings...
