Description:
Abstract:
A representation of the administrative units of the Oregon Water Resources Dept.
Purpose:
To represent the OWRD administrative basins as defined by Oregon Revised Statutes (ORS 536.700). They are not designed for use in hydrologic analysis or other similar analyses even though they may correspond with other drainage delineations.
Supplemental_Information:
Note that the documentation of the procedures used to create this data set were compiled long after the original effort and by persons not involved in the original project.

Following the OWRD Drainage Basin map series (see first “cross reference” entry below), OWRD GIS staff used corresponding line work (arcs), where applicable, from a 1:24,000-scale fourth-field hydrologic units theme of the state of Oregon. In cases where there weren’t corresponding lines, the OWRD drainage basin maps were photocopied and enlarged to 24,000-scale and the lines transferred by hand to U.S.G.S. 24,000-scale quadrangle maps. From there they were digitized into the final theme.

Arc were snapped together to form polygons representing the basins and attributed with the OWRD basin name (long & short names) and OWRD basin number.
