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.

Data structure description This file includes water temperature data collected by the Nez Perce Soil and Water Conservation District in the Lindsay Creek watershed for the 2013-2015 field season.

There are several tabs in this file. The Summary tab sums the information from the monthly tabs. The monthly tabs present the data by month and year. The processed data tab contains the 1st step in data processing. the unprocessed parts and unprocessed data tabs contain the raw data as it was downloaded from the continuous monitoring station. This spreadsheet was developed by Sierra Larson and Brenda Knoll of the Nez Perce Soil and Water Conservation District.

The Salmonid exceedances tab calculates the number of days the stream temperatures exceeded specified criteria for spring and fall salmonid spawning, cold water biota and NPSWCD steelhead temperature data.

The rating table was developed by Joe Kaufman, City of Lewiston, and is needed to convert the flow data (which is collected in inches (height)) to CFS.
