Summary

Aquatic invasive species are often transported between water bodies on boats or boat trailers, thus they are considered one of the primary vectors for new introductions of invasive species to a water body. This data set contains geographic positioning system locational data for boater access points, use data (i.e. recreational, fishing), water quality measurements (e.g. calcium concentrations, pH), risk assessment data, and other physical attributes (i.e. size, elevation) where available within the Columbia and Snake Rivers and throughout the Columbia River Basin. This work builds on an earlier body of work by Wells et al. 2011, Prioritizing Zebra and Quagga Mussel Monitoring in the Columbia River Basin (PDF link below), which provided [...]

Purpose

This data set was compiled in response to a funding grant from the Bonneville Power Administration Technology Innovation group (Cooperative agreement #59650, Technology Innovation Project #276) to provide a GIS layer of river access points (boat ramps) within the Columbia and Snake Rivers and water bodies throughout the Columbia River Basin. The threat of aquatic invasive species (AIS), in particular zebra and quagga mussels being introduced, established, and spreading throughout the Columbia River Basin is a major concern to management and potential impacts to the Federal Columbia River Power System (FCRPS). The presence and colonization of AIS could potentially reduce efficiency and require significant and costly mitigation efforts to the FCRPS. Thus, the development of programs and tools to prevent new introductions and control the spread of AIS are needed. This information was intended to contribute to an initial prioritization of the placement of boat cleaning stations and also to identify additional information that may be needed for a more comprehensive prioritization process. The data set is for planning purposes and to aid in the prevention of the spread of aquatic invasive species, in particular invasive zebra and quagga mussels (Dreissenids) throughout the Columbia River Basin.
