Title: SCSNAT 1.0 - NRCS National Dams Inventory
Description:
Abstract:
The NRCS data dictionary lists 65 fields including names, identification, locations, physical sizes, and program aspects of dams built with SCS assistance. Estimated current number of such dams is 26,000. Dataset is on a national scale and resides at the SCS National Headquarters Engineering Division. Primary purpose is to manage dam safety and watershed projects programs. Data are forwarded to FAME for inclusion in "National Inventory of Dams" database. Collection Organization: Natural Resources Conservation Service Offices at all levels. Collection Methodology: Data are generated by NRCS offices at all levels. Data are primarily collected by NRCS State Offices, then forwarded to Regional Offices and then on to Headquarters. Collection Frequency: NRCS State Offices update data at least annually. Update Characteristics: Portions of dataset are updated as new dams are constructed or as more information is obtained on existing dams. STATISTICAL INFORMATION: Record consists of information about a single dam. Number of records ranges from 25K to 27K requiring from 5MB to 7MB storage. LANGUAGE: English ACCESS/AVAILABILITY: Data Center: USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service Dissemination Media: On 3B2 X UNIX and DOS platforms. File Format: Prelude DBMS and Paradox DBMS. Access Instructions: Contact the data center.
