Summary

To view and analyze state designated wild, scenic, and recreational streams in California.

Description

This dataset represents state designated wild, scenic, and recreational (WSR) streams per California Public Resources Code. The line segments used for this dataset were derived from the California Department of Fish and Wildlife (CDFW) "California Streams" dataset which is based on National Hydrography Dataset (NHD) High Resolution data. Information regarding the "California Streams" dataset is described in that dataset's documentation. FEDERALLY DESIGNATED WSR STREAMS ARE NOT INCLUDED IN THIS DATASET.

Supplemental information
This dataset replaces previous versions of CDFW's California WSR datasets. This version differs from former ones in that it 1) is derived from the NHD based "California Streams" dataset, and 2) only includes those California streams that are designated wild, scenic, or recreational per the California Public Resources Code (PRC) Sections 5093.541, 5093.542, and 5093.545.

Process step
When the process occurred 2012-02-17
Description
The former California Wild and Scenic Rivers shapefile dataset, "wsr_08_dfg", was edited to delete all federally-designated WSR stream attribute table records and fields, leaving just the state-designated WSR stream attribute table records and fields. The resultant shapefile dataset was used to do a "select by location" query with the "CA_Streams_Statewide" file geodatabase feature class as a target layer. The "CA_Streams_Statewide" GNIS_ID field was added to the second resultant shapefile dataset. Minor edits made to delete stream segments selected from the target dataset not included in the State Public Resources Code (PRC) designated streams document. A spatial join was performed on the first and second resultant shapefile datasets on the GNIS_ID field to add the PRC related attribute table records and fields. The PNAME and PNMCD fields were deleted from the spatially joined dataset as those were legacy attribute fields from the original "hydraca" ARC/INFO coverage which are no longer used or referenced. The following fields from the CA_Streams dataset were deleted: StreamLevel, Down_Meas, Up_Meas, Permanent_Identifier, DFG_Edit, Mouth_lat, Mouth_long, & Shape_Length. The remaining fields were retained: GNIS_ID, GNIS_Name, & DFGWATERID, WSR_ID, PRC_SEC, PRC_SECDIV, PRC_SUBDIV, and CA_CLASS. Line segments in the new "CA_Streams" feature based dataset were compared with their respective "ca_wsr_08" line segments, split were needed, and attribute table records edited accordingly. A new LENGTH field was added and recalculated with XTools Pro add-in software for ArcGIS. The attribute table was restructured and the fields sorted by WSR_ID also with XTools Pro.
