Layer depicts streams captured from USGS 1:24,000, 7.5 minute quadrangle maps, with perennial vs. intermittent classification, and connectivity through lakes, rivers, and small wetland basins. Streams are depicted as a single line. Attributes describe stream type, source of data, and connectivity. Directionality is accurate for all streams in the database with the exception of 40 short (< 500 m) unverified, unconnected streams. The layer covers the 89 USGS 7.5 minute quads in the Twin Cities metropolitan area.
