This dataset represents the Connecticut River Watershed Boundary and is from the Watershed Boundary Dataset (WBD). The WBD defines the areal extent of surface water drainage to a point, accounting for all land and surface areas. Watershed Boundaries are determined solely upon science-based hydrologic principles, not favoring any administrative boundaries or special projects, nor particular program or agency. The intent of defining Hydrologic Units (HU) for the Watershed Boundary Dataset is to establish a baseline drainage boundary framework, accounting for all land and surface areas. At a minimum, the WBD is being delineated and georeferenced to the USGS 1:24,000 scale topographic base map meeting National Map Accuracy...

Report summarizing the process and results of the Connect the Connecticut project.Connect the Connecticut is a collaborative effort to identify the best places to start: the areas within the watershed that partners agree are priorities for conservation to ensure that important species, habitats, and natural processes will be sustained into the future –– even in the face of climate and land use change.Facilitated by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS) and supported by the North Atlantic Landscape Conservation Cooperative (LCC), a team of more than 30 partners from state and federal agencies and private organizations spent more than a year developing a conservation “design” for the watershed using the best available...
