Excerpt: Tangible interest in NHD in California began in 1999 with the production of one “pilot” 1:24,000-scale sub-basin for the San Francisco Estuary Institute (SFEI). To highlight this and other developments, the USGS then held meetings that served as the catalyst for developing widespread interest in the state. Participation included a good cross-section of representatives from federal, state, regional, academic and private sectors. A presentation by Brian Sanborn of the U.S. Forest Service on plans to use NHD as the base layer for the USFS National Resource Information System (NRIS) water module helped to widen interest in NHD. This included the highly significant support of the USFS Region 5, which covers a large expanse of the State. The early meetings established the groundwork for an Innovative Partnership with the University of California-Davis for their production of NHD. A commitment was obtained among key State staff for developing NHD as the State’s hydrography layer, and a better understanding was gained among all meeting participants of the long-term goals and objectives of the program. Following these initial efforts to obtain widespread support for high resolution NHD, the USGS worked closely with the Gabe Garcia, NRIS Coordinator for the USFS Region 5. This resulted in an agreement to produce 33 sub-basins in southern California, which included support from Santa Barbara County and the San Diego Association of Governments. The production of the NHD is being accomplished at the Rocky Mountain Mapping Center. The agreement called for completion by September 2001, however, portions of the project remain in-work as of this date due to production implementation delays early in the project. The USFS Region 5 has targeted 13 sub-basins in support of the Lake Tahoe Area National Map Pilot as its next priority. Completion is expected by September 2002 so that the NHD can be included in the public opening of the National Map Internet Map Server.
