Water Supply Watersheds


Download Link: http://data.nconemap.gov/downloads/vector/wsw.zip
Abstract: Areas of North Carolina where local governments are required to adopt and implement water supply watershed protection ordinances, maps, and a management plans. Refer to http://portal.ncdenr.org/web/wq/swp/ws/wswp for more information on this program. The original polygons were delineated using paper USGS topographic maps. Starting in 2009 new water supply watershed boundaries were delineated using the watershed boundary dataset as a base. Older boundaries have not been updated to match the watershed boundary dataset.
Purpose: Data set should be used in conjunction with water quality classifications to identify areas were water supply watershed protection programs are required. Not all areas are strickly watersheds but stop at an upstream limit that is not a complete drainage area delineation.

Enumerated Domain:
Enumerated Domain Value: WS-I
Enumerated Domain Value Definition: Waters protected for all Class C uses plus waters used as sources of water supply for drinking, culinary, or food processing purposes for those users desiring maximum protection for their water supplies. WS-I waters are those within natural and undeveloped watersheds in public ownership. All WS-I waters are HQW by supplemental classification.

Attribute Domain Values:
Enumerated Domain:
Enumerated Domain Value: WS-II
Enumerated Domain Value Definition: Waters used as sources of water supply for drinking, culinary, or food processing purposes where a WS-I classification is not feasible. These waters are also protected for Class C uses. WS-II waters are generally in predominantly undeveloped watersheds. All WS-II waters are HQW by supplemental classification.

Attribute Domain Values:
Enumerated Domain:
Enumerated Domain Value: WS_III
Enumerated Domain Value Definition: Waters used as sources of water supply for drinking, culinary, or food processing purposes where a more protective WS-I or II classification is not feasible. These waters are also protected for Class C uses. WS-III waters are generally in low to moderately developed watersheds. More information: Water Supply Watershed Protection Program Homepage

Attribute Domain Values:
Enumerated Domain:
Enumerated Domain Value: WS-IV
Enumerated Domain Value Definition: Waters used as sources of water supply for drinking, culinary, or food processing purposes where a WS-I, II or III classification is not feasible. These waters are also protected for Class C uses. WS-IV waters are generally in moderately to highly developed watersheds or Protected Areas.
