Abstract:
HYD_PUB_SUBBASIN_WATERBODY:

This dataset contains waterbody features from the US Geologic Survey (USGS) High Resolution National Hydrography Dataset (NHD).  NHD waterbody features include polygons depicting Lake/Ponds, swamp/marsh, estuaries, etc.  Additional attributes have been added from the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Aquatic Resources Information Management System (ARIMS).  This data will be refreshed as-needed to reflect updates to the NHD and ARIMS.
Purpose:
This publication format is intended to improve the usability of the High Resolution NHD and ARIMS by combining attributes from both sources into one dataset with a simplified structure.   The publication format includes the most commonly used attribute information.  Other less commonly used attributes are available directly from the ARIMS system.
Supplemental_Information:
The High Resolution NHD in Oregon and Washington is stewarded by the Pacific Northwest Hydrography Framework (PNWHF).  The PNWHF is a regional partnership of federal and state agencies that provides cooperative stewardship and technical assistance in the maintenance of the NHD.
