Runoff Modeling Web Services

In cooperation with StreamStats, the runoff modeling services were developed using RESTful principles in order to assist engineers and watershed managers by calculating peak runoff for small watersheds. This API is intended to document the available service endpoints and provide limited example usage to assist developers in building outside programs that leverage the same data sources.

Current Streamflow and Water-Quality Monitoring at Select Sites in the Animas and San Juan River Basins, Colorado, New Mexico, and Utah

The USGS monitors current streamflow and water-quality conditions at various sites in the Animas and San Juan River Basins in Colorado, New Mexico, and Utah, including areas below the Gold King Mine release area. These streamgages provide continuous data on streamflow and select water-quality constituents including specific conductance, water temperature, pH, and turbidity.

National Water Information System: Groundwater Mapper for CO

A map based web application to access the National Water Information System (NWIS) which provides access to data at over 1.5 million sites. 

StreamStats for Colorado

The map-based user interface can be used to delineate drainage areas, get basin characteristics and estimates of flow statistics, and more. 

Funding partners: Colorado Department of Transportation and Colorado Water Conservation Board

North American Aquatic Macroinvertebrate Digital Reference Collection (NAAMDRC)

Aquatic invertebrates are a key component of freshwater ecosystems, and an understanding of aquatic invertebrate taxonomy is central to freshwater science. The North American Aquatic Macroinvertebrate Digital Reference Collection (NAAMDRC) was created by the USGS Aquatic Experimental Lab (AXL) to provide users with high-quality digital microscopy photographs.

Study Area Eastern Colorado Paleoflood Investigations

The location of the 188 streamgages used to develop the peak-streamflow equations, of which 44 streamgages have paleoflood or non-exceedance bound data.

Flood Database for Colorado

An easy-to-use, Web-based geodatabase of historical flood and paleoflood information which includes links to sources of flood data.  The interface makes this collection of information useful to water-resource managers to better understand the historic events for improved flood-frequency estimates of the largest floods in Colorado.

Flood Database for Colorado

The U.S. Geological Survey, in cooperation with the Colorado Department of Transportation, created a Web-based geodatabase for information on floods from 1867 through water year 2015.  The flood database also contains information on paleofloods occurring in the past 5,000 to 10,000 years.
