Title: Minimum Stream Flow polygons
Originators: Idaho Department of Water Resources
Publisher: Idaho Department of Water Resources
Publication place: Boise, Idaho
Data type: vector digital data
Description
A characterization of the data, including its intended use and limitations.
Abstract:
Idaho's Minimum Stream Flow Program was approved by the Legislature in 1978 to preserve stream flows and lake elevations for public health, safety and welfare. The minimum stream flow is the amount of flow necessary to preserve desired stream values, including fish and wildlife habitat, aquatic life, navigation and transportation, recreation, water quality, and aesthetic beauty.
Purpose:
Minimum stream flow water rights are held by the Idaho Water Resource Board in trust for Idaho citizens (Chapter 15, Title 42, Idaho Code). Any person or entity can make a request to the Idaho Water Resource Board to file an application for stream flow on any water body. To be approved, a minimum stream flow water right must be in the public interest, must not adversely affect senior water rights, must represent the minimum flow and not the desirable flow, and must show the flow is capable of being maintained.

There are currently 76 licensed or permitted water rights for minimum flows, and 3 for minimum lake levels. This covers about 670 miles of streams, and represents less than 1% of total stream miles in the state (map).

Metadata Standards
Description of the metadata standard used to document the data and reference to any additional extended profiles to the standard used by the metadata producer.
Standard name: FGDC Content Standards for Digital Geospatial Metadata
Standard version: FGDC-STD-001-1998
Time convention: local time
Metadata profiles defining additonal information:
Profile: ESRI Metadata Profile
FGDC Plus Metadata Stylesheet
Stylesheet: FGDC Plus Stylesheet
File name: FGDC Plus.xsl
Version: 2.3
Description: This metadata is displayed using the FGDC Plus Stylesheet, which is an XSL template that can be used with ArcGIS software to display metadata. It displays metadata elements defined in the Content Standard for Digital Geospatial Metadata (CSDGM) - aka FGDC Standard, the ESRI Profile of CSDGM, the Biological Data Profile of CSDGM, and the Shoreline Data Profile of CSDGM. CSDGM is the US Federal Metadata standard. The Federal Geographic Data Committee originally adopted the CSDGM in 1994 and revised it in 1998. According to Executive Order 12096 all Federal agencies are ordered to use this standard to document geospatial data created as of January, 1995. The standard is often referred to as the FGDC Metadata Standard and has been implemented beyond the federal level with State and local governments adopting the metadata standard as well. The Biological Data Profile broadens the application of the CSDGM so that it is more easily applied to biological data that are not explicitly geographic (laboratory results, field notes, specimen collections, research reports) but can be associated with a geographic location. Includes taxonomical vocabulary. The Shoreline Data Profile addresses variability in the definition and mapping of shorelines by providing a standardized set of terms and data elements required to support metadata for shoreline and coastal data sets. The FGDC Plus Stylesheet includes the Dublin Core Metadata Element Set. It supports W3C DOM compatible browsers such as IE7, IE6, Netscape 7, and Mozilla Firefox. It is in the public domain and may be freely used, modified, and redistributed. It is provided "AS-IS" without warranty or technical support.
