Saginaw Bay Restoration Assessment: Degree Flowlines

May 24, 2024

The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) created geospatial datasets of potential culvert locations along with flowlines connected toLake Huron as part of the Saginaw Bay Restoration Assessment (SBRA). The Degree Flowlines and Culverts datasets represent the flowline network and culverts in the SBRA study area. Both datasets will be served in the Great Lakes Wetlands Restoration Area mapping application []. The map-based user interface can be used by stakeholders to find potential areas for successful wetlands restoration. Each flowline was assigned a connectivity score describing its level of connectedness to Lake Huron. Low numbers represent fewer disconnections, such as culverts or road crossings, between the reach and the water body requiring no flow network modification to restore the area. For more information, see the full data release documentation and the GLCWRA webpage:
