Description:
Abstract:
Advisory: C1 Waters are a reselect of the Surface Water Quality Standard's (SWQS) CATEGORY attribute. The information contained in this metadata record reflects the SWQS data. As stated in this metadata record's Use Constraints section, NJDEP makes no representations of any kind, including, but not limited to, the warranties of merchantability or fitness for a particular use, nor are any such warranties to be implied with respect to the digital data layers furnished hereunder. NJDEP assumes no responsibility to maintain them in any manner or form. By downloading this data, user agrees to the data use constraints listed within this metadata record. This data is a digital representation of New Jersey's Surface Water Quality Standards in accordance with "Surface Water Quality Standards for New Jersey Waters" as designated in N.J.A.C. 7:9 B. The Surface Water Quality Standards (SWQS) establish the designated uses to be achieved and specify the water quality (criteria) necessary to protect the State's waters. Designated uses include potable water, propagation of fish and wildlife, recreation, agricultural and industrial supplies, and navigation. These are reflected in use classifications assigned to specific waters. The line-work has been broken/altered to reflect the descriptions specified at N.J.A.C. 7:9B-1.15. When interpreting the stream classifications and anti-degradation designations, the descriptions specified in the SWQS at N.J.A.C. 7:9B-1.15 always take precedence. The GIS layer reflects the stream classifications and anti-degradation designations adopted as of June 16, 2008 is supplemental only and is not legally binding.
Purpose:
The hydrography stream network was created to support water management and monitoring activities within NJDEP, and to be a valuable layer for computerized cartographic products.

Digital color infrared (CIR) orthophotography of New Jersey in State Plane NAD83 Coordinates, U.S. Survey Feet. The digital orthophotography was produced at a scale of 1:2400 (1"=200') with a 1 foot pixel resolution. The linear streams layer and the polygonal water bodies extracted from the land use/land cover for 2002 was digitized directly from 2002 digital image files.

Stream segments were broken at state park/wildlife management area boundaries where mentioned in the surfacewater quality standards.
Process_Step:
Process_Description:
The base linework is the hydrography layer derived from the 2002 overflight. Where the standards specified a boundary, the appropriate source data was used to break the line segment to accurately reflect the written standard. The arcs were then coded for their surface water quality standards designation in accordance with "Surface Water Quality Standards for New Jersey Waters" as designated in N.J.A.C. 7:9 B-1. The old SWQS layer was the primary source used to determine attributes. The interpretation of the written text has already been done and was therefore used as a guide. Where the hydrography differed significantly between old and new, the correct entry in the standards was found, interpreted and then applied.

Attribute_Domain_Values:
Enumerated_Domain:
Enumerated_Domain_Value: 4
Enumerated_Domain_Value_Definition:
Ditch. Man-made open water features created for the purpose of moving water from one location to another to drain wetlands, prevent flooding, or provide drainage for urban areas. Typically found in wetlands, near roadways, and in urban areas.

Attribute_Domain_Values:
Enumerated_Domain:
Enumerated_Domain_Value: 5
Enumerated_Domain_Value_Definition:
Invisible Stream. Arc representing a stream in NJDEP's existing hydrology coverage that is not visible on the 2002 imagery, yet the surrounding area appears to support the continued presence of the stream, i.e. undisturbed wetland and/or upland vegetation, no obvious man-made or natural disturbance that would impact the existing stream flow.
