Water Resource Inventory and Assessment (WRIA): Erwin National Fish Hatchery, Unicoi County, Tennessee

Metadata Updated: May 23, 2017

The Water Resource Inventory and Assessment (WRIA) for Erwin National Fish Hatchery (NFH) summarizes available and relevant information for hatchery water resources and identifies any isues of concern, threats, or needs for those identified water resources as related to Erwin NFH. The Water Resource Inventory and Assessment (WRIA) for Erwin National Fish Hatchery (Erwin NFH or the hatchery) summarizes available and relevant information for hatchery water resources. One of the primary emphases of the document is to provide recommendations to address any perceived threats, needs, or concerns (immediate and long-term) on the hatchery related to water resources. Topics addressed within the WRIA report include the hatchery’s natural setting (topography, climate, geology, soils, hydrology), impacts of development within the associated watershed(s), potential effects from climate change, hatchery infrastructure in relation to water resources, historic and current water monitoring activities on and near the hatchery, water quality and quantity information, and state water use regulatory guidelines. All of this information was compiled from publicly available reports (e.g., published research reports), databases (e.g., websites maintained by government agencies, academic institutions, and non-governmental organizations), and geospatial datasets from federal, state, and local agencies. The primary drivers of the threats and issues of concern identified in this WRIA are the anthropogenic and environmental stressors occurring within the Nolichucky River watershed, and more specifically within the North Indian Creek subwatershed, which is identified by the 12-digit Hydrologic Unit Code (HUC) 060101080605. Because hatchery water supply is dependent on groundwater from a local spring, determining a region of hydrologic influence (RHI) for Erwin NFH based solely on surface water was complicated. However, the North Indian Creek subwatershed was identified as the most appropriate classification for inventorying water resources and includes areas of potential groundwater recharge as related to hatchery operations.
