Abstract

Data in this resource folder comprise of geospatial data related to the National Wild and Scenic Rivers System. The system was formed by the Wild and Scenic Rivers Act of 1968 (WSRA) and sets out to protect and enhance rivers and their associated Outstandingly Remarkable Values (ORVs) in perpetuity. Both designated Wild and Scenic Rivers (WSR) and potentially eligible rivers on the Nationwide Rivers Inventory (NRI) form the national system. A geospatial dataset for WSR and NRI segments are provided here for individual or joint analyses. Both datasets are seamlessly joined with the NHDv2. These datasets contain hydrologic and WSRA policy specific attribute data related to all segments within the national system.
