Description:
Abstract:
Subdivisions within a watershed. Subwatersheds are the sixth level (12-digit) of the hydrologic unit hierarchy. This file contains Hydrologic Unit boundaries and codes for the United States, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands. The data are a seamless national representation of Hydrologic Unit boundaries at HU_12 levels compiled from U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) National Hydrography Dataset (NHD) and U.S. Department of Agricultural (USDA) Natural Resources Conservation Services (NRCS) Watershed Boundary Dataset (WBD) sources. These sources were based on state level stewardship efforts. The data were then imported into USGS National Hydrography Dataset Hydrologic Unit data structure. For Alaska, preliminary data for the HU_12 are available for Southcentral and Southeast Alaska subregions only.
Purpose:
The data for the lower 48 states were developed based on the certified WBD to provide the USFS national forests with national hydrologic drainage delineations at six aquatic hierarchical levels. The data for Alaska are currently an interim product meant to be used only until USGS releases certified data for Alaska.
Supplemental_Information:
This dataset is a subset of the regional NHD data obtained from the FS Corporate Data Warehouse, which is a subset of the national data obtained from the USGS. It has been clipped to the CSA4 viewing frame and fire protection unit boundaries.

The data were digitized and edited from best available sources at a scales ranging from 1:24,000, or better, up to 1:2,000,000. This data is not intended to be the authoritative source for hydrologic units, but only as a reference to NHD data that has some interdependencies with hydrologic unit delineation for reach code assignments.

Data_Quality_Information:
Completeness_Report:
This data includes hydrologic delineation boundaries. It is aquatic, spatial data from the entire United States and its source is from the USDA-NRCS and USGS. Completed watershed boundary data was downloaded from their Watershed Boundary Delineations website the lower 48 states and Puerto Rico and Virgin Islands. The data for the state of Alaska is preliminary, uncertified data to be used only until USGS makes the certified data available for Alaska.

Process_Description:
For the geographic extent of the state of Alaska, the WBD data were reprojected using the NAD_1927_To_NAD_1983_Alaska transformation. No reprojection was executed on the rest of the dataset, and the data remain in the NAD_1927_To_NAD_1983_NADCON transformation.

Copied from CDW, selecting out the R6 subbasins. Reprojected to R6 Albers projection. Added the Little Salmon subbasin (17060210) in Hells Canyon from the Region 1 subbasins. Added the Smith subbasin (18010101) on the Siskiyou from the NRCS website as it was inexplicably missing from the CDW dataset.
