Short description:
Low-Head Dams - IDNR, 20200317 - Shows an inventory of low-head dams (in-channel) found in streams and rivers within Indiana. Provides structure names, waterbody names identification numbers, as well as information regarding structure size, construction materials used, and status, and date of removal (if removed). The attribute field named "Status" describes the dam as "Intact," "Partial" (the dam does not span the entire width of the channel), or "Removed" (some residual material may still be present). The inventory of low-head dams in Indiana was created by combining inventory lists from several agencies, including IDNR, USGS, Army Corps of Engineers, county surveyors, and the Indiana Silver Jackets organization. The low-head dams were then visited and verified by Indiana Department of Natural Resources (IDNR) law enforcement officers in 2016 and 2017. Data were provided by personnel of IDNR Water, Fish and Wildlife, and Outdoor Recreation divisions, and are current as of March 17, 2020.
