Access_Constraints:
The USDI Bureau of Reclamation provides public domain spatial data without restrictions. Access to spatial data that are considered 1) works in-progress, 2) for internal use, or 3) confidential, sensitive, or private may be restricted. Access to such data may require a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request to determine their disposition. For further information, contact the Geospatial Data Administrator at (208) 378-3515 or spatialdata@pn.usbr.gov.
Use_Constraints:
Users of spatial data obtained from the USDI Bureau of Reclamation are responsible for respecting any restrictions (i.e., use of private, sensitive, and confidential data restricted by policy or protected by law), even when not explicitly stated in the metadata. Use of spatial data determined to be public domain is unrestricted. Access to these spatial data does not imply they are public domain?users are responsible for determining the disposition of data. More information on the data disposition can be found under ?Security Classification? in the Identification section. In no event will the producers of Reclamation spatial data be liable for any damages arising from the use of, or the inability to use, these data. Contact the Geospatial Data Administrator at (208) 378-3515 or spatialdata@pn.usbr.gov with any questions about the status and disposition of these data.

Data_Quality_Information:
Attribute_Accuracy:
Attribute_Accuracy_Report:
Depth values collected by USGS - Tacoma Office, through a contract with USBR. Survey crew members consisted of both USGS (Mark Mastin, Ted Morgan, Pete McCarthy, Greg Justin, Bob Drzymkowski, Jon Tilque) and USBR (Walt Larrick, Dan Church, Edward Young, Scott Wiley) personnel.
Logical_Consistency_Report: point topology exists
Completeness_Report: Complete for the relevant areas mentioned in the abstract.
Positional_Accuracy:
Horizontal_Positional_Accuracy:
Horizontal_Positional_Accuracy_Report:
Sites collected with the aid of a Trimble survey quality base station positioned on a high order survey marker or surveyed from a high order survey marker to allow radio communication.
Quantitative_Horizontal_Positional_Accuracy_Assessment:
Horizontal_Positional_Accuracy_Value: 0.5
Horizontal_Positional_Accuracy_Explanation:
Data collection is sometimes in conditions of high variablility due to water conditions. Therefore, an accuracy description of less than the GPS units capability is used.
Vertical_Positional_Accuracy:
Vertical_Positional_Accuracy_Report:
Sites collected with the aid of a Trimble survey quality base station positioned on a high order survey marker or surveyed from a high order survey marker to allow radio communication.
Quantitative_Vertical_Positional_Accuracy_Assessment:
Vertical_Positional_Accuracy_Value: 0.1
Vertical_Positional_Accuracy_Explanation:
Data collection is sometimes in conditions of high variablility due to water conditions. Therefore, an accuracy description of less than the GPS units capability is used.

Process_Step:
Process_Description:
Boat Collection: Sites collected with the use of a single beam echo sounder (Innerspace model 455 XPe) tied to a survey quality Trimble GPS. The GPS is tied to a high order survey marker or it's location was surveyed from a high order survey marker in order to allow radio communication when collecting depths. The echo sounder captured a recording every 50 ms and the RTK GPS captured a recording every second. The echo sounder was physically fixed to the side of a sixteen foot jet boat and GPS antenna pole.
Non-Boat Collection: Surveyors waded in main river, backwater channels and traversed stream banks and flood plains with a backpack RTK-GPS receiver and antenna mounted to a range pole. Rover shots made by spaced cross section lines through features such as riffles, shallow areas, gravel bars, islands between channels, or across small side channels. Many cross sections did not cross the entire feature because of limited GPS coverage or the water became too deep or rapid to wade. Particular attention was made at the head or tail of riffles or the head and mouth of side channels that were often characterized by complicated flow patterns. In these areas, the regular cross section pattern may be difficult to trace because mass points were taken to try and capture as much of the geometry as possible.

The Zillah to Granger reach was collected from 05/21/04 through 05/15/04 and the Selah Gap to Union Gap reach was collected from 05/17/04 through 05/21/04.
Crews consisted of the following personnel: USGS: Mark Martin, Ted Moran, Pete McCarthy, Greg Justin, Bob Drzymkowski USBR: Walter Larrick, Dan Church, Edward Young, Scott Wiley
Shots of the water surface elevations were taken throughout the surveyed area. The post processing of the depth soundings produce elevations of the river bottom by subtracting the depths from the water surface elevations. Hypac software was used for post processing. Some sounding files required editing of several extraneous points, while other files showed a clearly defined stream bed and needed very little editing.
