Streamflow Measurement (USGS & SEO) and Estimate Locations for the Powder/Tongue River Basin Plan, Wyoming at 1:24,000
The USGS and SEO Streamflow Gage Locations dataset with locations where ungaged natural flow estimates were taken contains the latitude-longitude locations for selected gages within the Powder/Tongue River Basin Planning Area. This dataset contains the locations only for those USGS and SEO gages that were used in the Powder/Tongue River Basin Plan to model available flow. The locations where natural flow was estimated for purposes of modeling available flow are also included.
ABSTRACT: Ground water, of relatively good quality, occurs though-out southeastern Montana's Tongue River basin and can be procured cheaply and easily. The widespread occurrence of springs and the de velopment of shallow aquifers enables settlement to occur away from perennial streams and allows for extensive grazing of the range. Ground water m the Tongue River basin occurs in five aquifers ranging from shallow alluvium to the extremely deep Madison Group. Coal beds of the Fort Union Formation contain significant quantities of good quality ground water. Extensive strip mining of these coal beds lowers the water level of nearby wells and causes springs to dry up. There are over 1,700 permits for ground water appropriation...
This dataset contains the Wyoming Department of Environmental Quality Stream Classification Hydrography features.
Two unique datasets were gathered to document whether flow management for hydropower affects the abundance and diversity of aquatic insect assemblages. The first dataset was collected in Grand Canyon from 2012-2014 by citizen scientists rafting the Colorado River. Simple light traps were set out each night in camp and used to capture the adult life stages of aquatic insects that emerged from the Colorado River. Three aquatic insect taxa were captured in sufficient abundance to analyze statistically including midges (order Diptera, family Chironomidae), micro-caddisflies (order Trichoptera, family Hydroptilidae), and blackflies (order Diptera, family Simuliidae, principally Simulium arcticum). These data were used...
This dataset contains the 6 stream flow segment locations in the Powder/Tongue River Basin Planning Area. The associated permit data for each segment is also included as feature attributes.
This dataset contains the 14 major reservoirs in the Powder/Tongue River Basin Planning Area. All surface water storage in structures containing more than 50 acre-feet of storage or more than 20 feet high (meeting the minimum standards for inclusion in the Dam Safety database) were initially selected. These selection criteria produced a set of 189 surface water storage facilities. The State Engineer's Office Water Division Two commissioners agreed that a further set of criteria should be introduced to provide a list from which the dams of particular significance to the basin could be developed. Commissioners agreed that in almost all cases, a limit of 1,000 acre-feet capacity and "serving multiple users" produced...
This dataset contains the irrigated lands mapped for the Powder/Tongue River Basin Plan. All man induced irrigation or subirrigation was delineated. Natural subirrigated fields were not delineated unless some benefit was being received from a man made system. Irrigated lands were divided into the following categories based on visual interpretations of the quality of the irrigation, types of crops supported, and the type and condition of the irrigation delivery systems and on-farm systems used to serve these lands: A - Full service irrigation (typically receives a full water supply); B - Partial service irrigation (typically receives a reduced water supply due to limited water availability or the inability to provide...
Contains approximately 3407 point locations of Wyoming Stock Pond Permit Locations on file with the Wyoming State Engineer's Office (SEO). They range in dates from the late 1800s to 2000, but are located only to the nearest 40 acre parcel. All locational information and attributes were imported from the SEO Water Right Permits Database stored in a MS Access database.
Wyoming Major Reservoir Permits through October 1999 for the Powder/Tongue River Basin Plan, Wyoming
Contains approximately 53 reservoir permits for 17 major reservoirs on file with the Wyoming State Engineer's Office (SEO). They range in dates from the late 1800s to the late 1900s. All attributes were imported from the SEO Tabulation of Adjudicated Surface Water Rights stored in a MS Access database.
These geospatial data were collected during the August 9 and September 14, 2016 topographic and hydrographic survey of the Musselshell River at S-300 at Ryegate, MT.
Geospatial Data for Bridge Scour Countermeasure Assessments at Select Bridges in the United States, 2014–16
Scouring of streambed material surrounding bridge structures is a leading cause of bridge failure in the United States. Damages resulting from bridge failure oftentimes lead to financial burdens and loss of life. To date, there has been no comprehensive evaluation of the current (2016) effectiveness of the guidance or overall long-term performance of bridge-scour countermeasures provided in the Federal Highway Administration, Hydraulic Engineering Circular No. 23, Bridge Scour and Stream Instability Countermeasures. To that end, the U.S. Geological Survey, in cooperation with the Federal Highway Administration, obtained bathymetric, topographical, and other data at 14 of the surveyed sites across the United States...
Contains approximately 3111 irrigation water right permits on file with the Wyoming State Engineer's Office (SEO). They range in dates from the late 1800s to 2001. The water rights attribution task entails identifying and describing the water rights attached to the irrigated lands polygons. This task is included in the river basin planning process for two reasons. First, knowing the water rights attached to the polygons provides additional understanding of the source of supply and the irrigation systems that deliver water to the polygons. This increased understanding contributes to the accuracy and reliability of the service area designations used to group lands by source of supply. The second reason for the water...
TONGUE RIVER RAILROAD COMPANY, CONSTRUCTION AND OPERATION OF AN ADDITIONAL RAIL LINE FROM ASHLAND TO DECKER, BIG HORN AND ROSEBUD COUNTIES, MONTANA.
The Major Irrigation Ditch Diversion Headgate Locations dataset contains the latitude-longitude locations for 70 selected ditch headgates within the Powder/Tongue River Basin Planning Area. This dataset contains the locations only for those ditches that were described in the "Powder/Tongue River Basin Plan Irrigation Diversion Operation and Description, Task 2A, Technical Memorandum."
