Abstract:
This layer is a polygon shapefile of the thermally sensitive areas in Dane County, Wisconsin. Thermally sensitive areas are areas of land that drain to cold water communities. Cold water community layer includes surface waters capable of supporting a community of cold water fish and other aquatic life, or serving as a spawning area for cold water fish species (Wis. Admin. Code NR 102.04(3)(a)). The layer includes, but is not restricted to, surface water identified as trout water by the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources (WDNR) (Wisconsin Trout Streams, publication 6-3600 (80) or its successor). The layer also includes rivers or streams proposed by WDNR as cold water communities or Class I, II, III trout streams.

For applicable areas, Chapter 14.51 of the Dane County Code of Ordinances requires that thermal control practices be included in a stormwater management plan if a development is within a thermally sensitive area, e.g. a watershed of a river or stream identified as an existing or proposed cold water community. This is to ensure no increase in temperature of stormwater post-construction in order to protect cold water communities. See the metadata for cold water communities and the web locator for thermally sensitive areas for additional information (<http://www.co.dane.wi.us/landconservation/cws/index3.html>).

The layer was created by the former Dane County Land Conservation Department (now a Division in the Land & Water Resources Department) with data from the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources (WDNR) and the University of Wisconsin-Madison Land Information and Computer Graphics Facility (LICGF).

Purpose:
This information is intended for cartographic use and general spatial analyses. For applicable areas, Chapter 14.51 of the Dane County Code of Ordinances requires that thermal control practices be included in a stormwater management plan if a development is within a thermally sensitive area, e.g. a watershed of a river or stream identified as an existing or proposed cold water community. This is to ensure no increase in temperature of stormwater post-construction in order to protect cold water communities. See the metadata for cold water communities and the web locator for thermally sensitive areas for additional information (<http://www.co.dane.wi.us/landconservation/cws/index3.html>).

Data_Quality_Information:
Attribute_Accuracy:
Attribute_Accuracy_Report:
The attributes were reviewed by the former Dane County Land Conservation Department (now a Division in the Land & Water Resources Department). The accuracy of the data was verified by manually comparing plots of the source information.
Logical_Consistency_Report:
The data set is topologically structured line data with no gaps or omissions.
Completeness_Report: The data set is 100% percent complete for 2002, updated 2008.
Positional_Accuracy:
Horizontal_Positional_Accuracy:
Horizontal_Positional_Accuracy_Report:
The data were derived from the Department of Natural Resources 1:24,000-scale watershed layer with a horizontal accuracy of 12 meters. In addition, hydrologic unit information, derived by LICGF using SWAT2000 with a Digital Elevation Model, was also used. For the hydrologic units, horizontal positional accuracy is dependent the accuracy and horizontal resolution of the DEM from which the hydrologic units were derived. Accuracy of the DEM has not been evaluated. The horizontal resolution of the DEM is 30 meters which was resampled to 9.84 meters.

Process_Step:
Process_Description:
This data layer was created from a copy of the 1:24,000-scale watershed boundary coverage from the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources (WDNR). Cold water communities were displayed as a backdrop and areas of land that drained to the cold water communities were delineated using either the 1:24,000-scale watershed boundaries or hydrologic unit information derived by LICGF using SWAT2000 with a Digital Elevation Model. In general, the WDNR watershed boundaries were used except when there was not enough information in the wateshed layer or if there were major discrepancies between the WDNR watershed boundaries and the hydrologic units. In both cases, the hydrologic unit boundaries were used.

The attribute "tharea" was added and coded as a 1 for thermally sensitive areas; all other areas were coded as a 9. The coverage was then converted to a shapefile.

In 2008, all polygons in the Towns of Vermont, Blue Mounds and Perry (per request from WDNR) were coded as 1. This changed the attribute value from 9 to 1 for four polygons -- these areas are draining to cold water communities outside of Dane County.
