Item Identification

Title: Steelhead (Puget Sound DPS)
Publication Date: 2016-06-06
Abstract:

Critical habitat includes the stream channels within the designated stream reaches, and includes a lateral extent as defined by the ordinary high-water line (33 CFR 319.11). In areas where ordinary high-water line has not been defined, the lateral extent is defined by the bankfull elevation. Bankfull elevation is the level at which water begins to leave the channel and move into the floodplain and is reached at a discharge which generally has a recurrence interval of 1 to 2 years on the annual flood series. Critical habitat in lake areas is defined by the perimeter of the water body as displayed on standard 1:24,000 scale topographic maps or the elevation of ordinary high water, whichever is greater.See the final rule (81 FR 9252) for descriptions of areas excluded from this critical habitat designation. Military areas ineligible for designation (qualifying Integrated Natural Resource Management Plan) were not clipped out of the data. Excluded Habitat Conservation Plan (HCP) lands and Indian lands were not clipped out of the data.

Purpose:

These data represent critical habitat designated (February 24, 2016, 81 FR 9252) under the Endangered Species Act for the Puget Sound steelhead DPS.

Process Steps

Process Step 1

CC ID: 1082820
Description:

Data creation process 2013 - 2016.

FCH_STPUG_Designated&Excluded_6-6-16.shp

Critical habitat data were derived from fish distribution data from the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife and the Northwest Indian Fisheries Commission.

Process Step 2

CC ID: 1082821
Description:

FCH_STPUG_Designated&Excluded_6-6-16.shp (GCS_North_American_1983 wkid 4269) geographic transformation not necessary, saved as -> STPUG_ch.shp (GCS_North_American_1983 wkid 4269).

Geometry was edited (deleted features), attributes were not edited, metadata was edited.

Deleted features were those with Econ_Excl = “Exclude - Economic Impacts” (i.e., removed economic exclusion features that were not designated).

Process Date/Time: 2019-07-17 00:00:00

Process Step 3

CC ID: 1082822
Description:

The 2019 version STPUG_ch.shp (GCS_North_American_1983 wkid 4269) was converted into the standardized feature class Steelhead_PugetSoundDPS_20160224 (GCS_WGS_84 wkid 4326) using the National Critical Habitat Geodatabase processing protocol.

During standardization, geometry was not edited. Attributes were edited. Metadata was edited and populated using the final rule and metadata from the source FCH_STPUG_Designated&Excluded_6-6-16.shp (GCS_North_American_1983 wkid 4269).

Migrated fields: "STRM_NAME" into "UNIT" (deleted values "unnamed" and "unnamed lake"), "USEDESC" into "NOTES"

Dropped fields: FID, HUC5, USE, LENGTH, INRMP, Tribe_Excl, HCP_Excl, Econ_Excl, Final_CH
