Site Naming Conventions

Although site names have varied according to different agencies over different periods of time, this document recommends a naming convention to be applied to all sites for consistency. However, historically used names can continue to be used by the MOU Group; the compendium provides a cross table listing the convention name and known historical names for the same site. Sites have been named according to the convention “River Name at/below Geographic Name.” For example, Site 1, located upstream from Pyramid Lake at Marble Bluff Dam, is named “Truckee River at Marble Bluff.” Site names and the descriptive information used by the collecting organizations are presented in Table 3-2 (see Appendix A for more information).
