DescriptionAbstract
This shapefile contains the boundaries of the 8-digit watersheds that intersect New York State.
Purpose
These hydrologic unit boundaries provide a uniquely identified and uniform method of subdividing the state into large drainage areas at 1:250,000 scale.
Supplemental Information
The 8-digit hydrologic unit codes for each watershed indicate the hydrologic region (first two digits), hydrologic subregion (second two digits), accounting unit (third two digits), and cataloging unit (fourth two digits), as defined by the USGS. This dataset was extracted from the national 1:250,000-scale dataset that is available on the USGS Water Resources website: <http://water.usgs.gov/GIS/huc.html>
