It also contains, for each basin, information relating to its individual basin/region/division name and number. State borders are also included in the data. Data for Division XIII Distant Islands Division is not included. These basins are the primary building block for the collection of national hydrologic data and the assessment of water resources. Data are suitable for GIS applications. Free online download. Available in ArcView Shapefile and MapInfo mid/mif.
