RIVER SYSTEM OPERATIONS
Task 1.7 Compile historic data on mainstem hydro and storage dam operations.
Task 1.8 Participate in regional discussions on providing in-season and dam operations data and determine the appropriate role for StreamNet.
Objective 2 - Data Management
Task 2.1 Design, develop, and maintain standard codes and data exchange formats for data being compiled as part of the StreamNet project, and for similar data development initiatives.
Task 2.2 Update the existing data exchange format report.
Task 2.3 Provide database management and administration, to include: 1) maintaining StreamNet data sets, 2) processing exchange data into the regional database, 3) transporting data to SQL, 4) enhancing StreamNet database structures and capabilities, and 5) providing programming services to participants to allow for efficient data entry and transfer.
Task 2.4 Designate and maintain a metadata format for spatial data.
Task 2.5 Establish and implement procedures for coordinating spatial data activities among participating organizations.
Task 2.6 Update/maintain a project data plan that identifies 1) current data holdings, 2) data items to be incorporated, and 3) data development expectations for participating agencies.
Objective 3 - Library / Reference Services
Task 3.1 Continue to develop a collection of materials including:
a) Documents used as source materials for data compiled in Objective 1.
Task 3.2 Provide improved user access to the materials described in Task 3.1, including:
Task 3.3 Catalog, index, and prepare a summary of materials acquired in Task 3.1a; catalog and index materials acquired in Task 3.1b; catalog materials acquired in Task 3.1c,d.
Task 3.4 Manage the StreamNet Library and provide library services including reference and referral, document delivery, inter-library lending and borrowing, and on-line search.
Task 3.5 Engage in networking with other agency and regional library service providers including:
Objective 4 - River Reach System / Hydrologic Referencing
Task 4.1 Maintain active coordination with the NHD team, providing comments and technical assistance as necessary.
Task 4.2 Assess the status of the 1:100,000-scale hydrography in terms of its treatment of lakes and reservoirs; establish graphic links and provide regionally consistent unique numbers for stream-linked water bodies (and high mountain lakes if feasible).
Task 4.3 Evaluate the NHD product in terms of accuracy and applicability to StreamNet. Make appropriate corrections to the NHD.
Task 4.4 Implement the river reach system maintenance strategy including:
Task 4.5 Port applicable StreamNet data to the new 1:100,000-scale hydrography.
Task 4.6 Provide technical assistance regarding use of the 1,000,000-scale river reach system.
Objective 5 - Data Delivery / Information Systems
Task 5.1 Receive and respond to requests for data, source materials, and custom products.
Task 5.2 Continue to maintain and enhance the existing client-server system to provide access to StreamNet data products through the Internet.
Task 5.3 Maintain and enhance other components of the StreamNet home page and incorporate new features that complement existing components.
Task 5.4 Develop and implement a strategy for providing electronic access to StreamNet data through means other than the Internet.
Task 5.5 Provide training and orientation for users of the StreamNet data delivery systems upon request.
Task 5.6 Prepare data development strategies and products in support of Fish and Wildlife program monitoring and evaluation activities.
Task 5.7 Prepare map products for use in aquatic resource policy, planning, and management.
Task 5.8 Prepare topical reports that describe content, methods used, and sources of select large StreamNet datasets.
Task 5.9 Provide technical assistance to others involved in the Fish and Wildlife Program and activities that support the Program .
Objective 6 - Project Management / Coordination
Task 6.1 Administer all aspects of the project at the regional and sub-contractor levels, including oversight of budget and personnel and monitoring of project activities.
Task 6.2 Organize/participate in coordination meetings with the steering committee, BPA, CBFWA, Council, NMFS, ISAB/ISRP, and participating organizations.
Task 6.3 Prepare project administration reports including:
Task 6.4 Produce public information materials including updated versions of the project brochure, computer demonstration materials, and/or other appropriate materials.
Task 6.5 Participate in educational and professional conferences.
Task 6.6 Maintain communications between StreamNet and other f&w activities in order to identify means for collaborative data collection, storage, and dissemination.
Task 6.7 Participate in F&W Program advisory groups and other applicable forums.
Task 6.8 Update the StreamNet data plan.
Task 6.9 Compile a project record consisting of final versions of all significant written materials that are prepared during the contract period.
