Data and hydraulic models at selected dam-removal and culvert-retrofit sites in the northeastern United States

July 1, 2021

This dataset contains U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) developed hydraulic models, USGS developed hydrology data, US Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) supplied data (topography/bathymetry and structure data for pre removal conditions), and USGS field surveyed data at nine dam-removal and culvert-retrofit sites in the northeastern United States (Olson and Simeone, 2021). The hydrology, the USFWS supplied and USGS field data are used to support the development of one-dimensional and two-dimensional U.S. Army Corps of Engineer (USACE) Hydrologic Engineering Center's River Analysis System (HEC-RAS) models for both the pre- and post-dam removal and culvert-retrofit conditions. The referenced models were used to evaluate fish passage and flood risk along the simulated reaches in the various states simulated. The HEC-RAS hydraulic models include data for the models and model output files. This data release consists of four child items and a file listing the name and location of each of the modeled areas and purpose of each model (file "Site_Details.xlsx"). This data release supports the following publication which contains further information and descriptions of the data contained in this release: Olson, S.A., and Simeone, C.E., 2021, Hydraulic modeling at selected dam-removal and culvert-retrofit sites in the northeastern United States: U.S. Geological Survey Scientific Investigations Report 2021-5056, 37 p., https://doi.org/10.3133/sir20215056.
