Description:
Abstract:
This coverages identifies Forest Service Riparian Stream buffers as described under Aquatic Conservation Strategy Objectives for the Northwest Forest Plan. This coverage is limited to the Mt. Hood National Forest.
Purpose:
Coverage is for used to identify riparian reserves as defined under Aquatic Conservation Strategy Objectives, Northwest Forest Plan, Record of Decision, Standards and Guidelines. Page.B-12. Westside buffer widths were based on the average actual heights of older site-index quality trees (150 years or older) measured on ecology plots located in riparian areas. The eastside buffer widths were based on site-potential tree heights as determined by the mile creeks watershed analysis process. The vegetation zone map was used to identify the coreect buffer width for each streams on the stream coverage and each lake on the lake coverage.
Supplemental_Information:
Original Data Dictionary Information: Coverage Name: RIPBUF Description: Riparian Habitat Conservation Areas Coverage type: POLYGON Geographic extent: Mt. Hood National Forest Source: Generated by buffering lakes and streams Revision Date: February 28, 1996 Comments: Riparian Reserves: Lands along streams and unstable and potentially unstable areas where special standards and guidelines direct land use. Stream centerlines were identified as Riparian Reserves and are specied on page C-30 of these Standards and Guidlines for the following five categories: 1. Fish Bearing Streams. 300 feet slope distance. 2. Permanently flowing nonfish-bearing streams. 150 feet slope distance. 3. Constructed ponds and reservoirs, and wetlands greater than 1 acre. 150 feet slope distance. 4. Lakes and natural ponds. 300 feet slope distance 5. Seasonally flowing or intermittent streams, wetlands less than 1 acre and unstable and potentially unstable areas. 100 feet slope distance
