Title: Roads Near Streams
Abstract: Roads are a source of auto related pollutants (e.g. gasoline, oil and other engine fluids). When roads are near streams, rain can wash these pollutants directly into the stream, harming both water and habitat quality. This metric measured the length of roads within 30 meters of a stream. More information about these resources, including the variables used in this study, may be found here: https://edg.epa.gov/data/Public/ORD/NERL/ReVA/ReVA_Data.zip.
Purpose: The data can be used for analysis and general mapping. Information provided in these data tables is indexed to HUC Code, and can be joined to the HUC_CODE field of the HUC250K layer. It was developed for use in EPA's Regional Vulnerability Assessment (ReVA) program. The ReVA program is designed to produce the methods needed to understand a region's environmental quality and its spatial pattern. The objective is to assist decision makers in making more informed decisions and in estimating the large-scale changes that might result from their actions.
