Use our Data Publishing Service to add your data set to the Data Store.

The StreamNet Data Store is a searchable archive of data sets related to fish and other aquatic resources that are not of the specific data types included in the main StreamNet database. These data sets come from many different sources and are provided for download in their original formats. To add your own data set to the Data Store, use our Data Publishing Service.

StreamNet did not participate in creation of most of these data sets, and we are not able to answer questions about those we did not help develop. For questions about the data sets available from this page, please contact the originator of the particular data set.

Project Name & Number
Purpose of Data Set Purpose provided in Abstracts
Summary / Abstract This water temperature resource was developed by Mr. Stuart McKenzie (USGS hydrologist, retired) and Mr. Tony Laenen in fiscal year 1998 under a contract with EPA. They collected and summarized water temperature data in the Columbia and Snake rivers and at the mouths of major direct tributaries to these rivers. The data were collected for calibrating an EPA temperature model for these mainstem rivers. StreamNet is providing a these data here as a convenience for people needing temperature data in the Columbia basin.
