Attribute_Accuracy_Report:
Feature in this dataset were copied from the Stream dataset which was originally derived from the CFF stream data.
Completeness_Report:
Dataset only contains streams which the data steward considers "major" for use in creating a broadscale map of streams on the Forest.  Most features were selected using the cff codes 402, 403, 410 and 413.
