Standard procedures and rules
Assigning names to an NHD feature is complicated by what is
recorded on the water right of record for the associated feature.
The following example is for Rough Canyon -
The NHD feature associated with Rough Canyon has multiple water rights on it which OWRD references by using Rough Creek or Rough Canyon Creek.
Neither name exists in the OR GNIS. This issue might only be reconciled by proposing a one of these as the name for the creek using the Board of Geographic Names process.
