VAD Maps and Downloads

You can download portions of the VAD from West Virginia's watersheds or view maps of the larger basins.  The download contain the survey code linked to the public view, stream name, level, latitude and longitude in decimal degrees, habitat scores, biological scores, and some surveys have basic water quality information. 

Note: The maps do not include up-to-date VAD surveys. To view the more recent information Click-Here; these points are survey codes only, but you can request addditional site information by contacting the Coordinator.

The spreadsheets and maps are not updated as frequently as the VAD (the last update was 2013).  You should check your basin of interest for additional surveys that might not be included.  If you have submitted a survey but it is not in the VAD contact the Coordinator or mail your survey to the WV Save Our Streams Program.  The VAD administrator can now query information from the database that includes latitude and longitude coordinates and hyperlinks to public surveys.  There are several categories of queries available.  Contact the Coordinator for more information.
