Select Attributes for NHDPlus Version 2.1 Reach Catchments and Modified Network Routed Upstream Watersheds for the Conterminous United States : Attributes for Surface Water Impoundments

Metadata Updated: July 6, 2024

This dataset describes attributes of surface-water impoundments derived from the National Inventory of Dams (NID), National Land Cover Data (NLCD) and the National Hydrography Dataset Plus (NHDPlus). Reservoir surface areas were determined using National Inventory of Dams Reservoir Surface area, NHDPlus Waterbody area, and National Land Cover Data (NLCD) open water body area as data sources. National Inventory of Dams were indexed on NHDPlus V2.1 using several sources and methods which are described in detail in the Process_Description section. The open-water classification in the NLCD was used to extract open water areas.
