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.

Summary / Abstract This dataset consists of documentation and mapping of anadromous fish habitat remediation/restoration project and related long-term monitoring locations in selected subbasins for the purpose of establishing a database and GIS coverages of all habitat restoration and related monitoring efforts in the Columbia River basin. The primary tasks were to locate historical, current, and proposed, 'likely to be funded' or 'already funded', habitat modification projects that effect salmon and/or steelhead ESUs in the Washington and British Columbia Upper Columbia Salmon Recovery Area, Oregon John Day, Grande Ronde, and Imnaha River subbasins, and Idaho Clearwater and Salmon River subbasins.

The habitat project location dataset is a series of Excel spreadsheets (one for each of the five areas above) which contain the details, i.e. responsible parties, contract numbers, geographic coordinates, action types, years implemented, stream segment, watershed, short descriptions, etc. I assigned each action a unique ID which I then located on 7.5' topographic maps and mapped in GIS. The GIS coverages are in the form of ESRI SHP files which contain most of the information from the spreadsheets. I generated PNG format map images from the GIS coverages and other publicly available coverages (i.e. HUCs, streams, land ownership, etc.). Each area has a map index and overview maps as well as many detailed maps showing individual project locations identified by the unique ID.

The monitoring locations exist as GIS SHP files only, with the exception of Snake River spring/summer Chinook redd survey and PIT tag release locations, for which I have developed detailed datasets as part of our modeling efforts. I extracted general information (i.e. years, type of monitoring, location details) from readily available sources of monitoring data (i.e. state, federal, and tribal monitoring programs) and mapped the sites which had long term (10 years or planned for >10 years), consistent (i.e. monitored in most years), ongoing (i.e. not discontinued), and readily available, datasets. I generated similar index, overview, and detailed location maps for the monitoring locations as for the habitat projects.
