Description:
Abstract:
Boundaries of EPA Proposed and Designated Sole Source Aquifers, EPA Region 10 -Idaho, Oregon, and Washington (there are none in Alaska).  You must select on AQ_STATUS = D (designated) and AQ_CLASS not equal to X.
Purpose:
Map display of boundaries of Sole Source Aquifers
Supplemental_Information:
From original .doc file included with data (file date was 7/8/1998):
Item Definitions for Sole Source Aquifers

IMPORTANT: You must reselect AQ_STATUS NE 'X' and AQ_CLASS NE 'X' in order
           to see the true aquifers.  There are some polygons in the coverage
           that are not aquifers.  You must unselect them.

Process_Description:
Snapped shoreline boundaries of Central Pierce County, Vashon-Maury, North Florence Dunal, Cedar Valley and Whidbey, Guemes, Marrowstone, and Camano Islands  to USGS 1:24000 scale hydrography shoreline data.  Snapped partial boundary of Newberg area aquifer, along Pilchuck River, to USGS 1:24000 scale hydrography stream data.  Also adjusted Cedar Valley aquifer boundaries, where appropriate, to coincide with alluvial floodplain boundaries as evidenced on Washington DNR digital geologic map and also by using 10m digital elevation model data.  The Cedar Valley source area boundary was adjusted to conform to 8-digit Washington hydrologic unit map boundaries, where appropriate.
