Watershed Health Monitoring: Riparian Cover using X DensioBank

This is a list of random sites sampled by the Department of Ecology's Watershed Health Monitoring Program during 2009-2016. It includes data for riparian cover as measured with a densiometer at the bankfull margins and the amount of stream network represented by the random site. Densiometer data are assigned ratings of riparian condition relative to reference conditions.

PCTkm_perSurveypctkm_persurveypctkm_persurveyNumberPercentage of streams in the survey network that the site represents. For each survey, this is the site's adjusted spatial weight, divided by the sum of all adjusted spatial weights in the survey x 100.
