Delineation

The limit of WASH is the cut banks of the dry channel.

 

Data Extraction

Capture Conditions

 

If WASH is ≥ 0.025" along the shortest axis, and is ≥ 1.25" along the longest axis, and is greater than or equal to two times the width of any STREAM/RIVER within the WASH,

Then capture.

 

Source Interpretation Guidelines

 

All

 

Capture the stream bed portion of the channel that contains water more than

just during or after local rainstorms or heavy snowmelt as STREAM/RIVER.

 

If WASH contains STREAM/RIVER,

Then capture both.

 

If WASH is < 0.025" along the shortest axis,

Then capture as STREAM/RIVER with Hydrographic Category = Intermittent, if

capture conditions for STREAM/RIVER are met.

 

Graphic

 

If a wash is represented as a single brown line, or as a sand area that is too

small to meet capture conditions, then capture STREAM/RIVER with

Hydrographic Category = Intermittent if capture conditions for STREAM/RIVER

are met.

changes in the stream.
