How can I obtain real-time streamflow information?

Real-time streamflow data are available from the U.S. Geological Survey for over 4200 stations throughout the United States. These data are available only through the World-Wide Web.

The American Whitewater Affiliation provides a compilation of web pages and telephone numbers where real-time streamflow and reservoir information can be obtained across the United States.

Note that direct telephone access to U.S. Geological Survey stream-gaging stations is not authorized except for official use, including those stations where National Weather Service equipment is co-located.

Access to these stations must be restricted to official use so that data are available during emergencies.
