Due to a lapse in appropriations, the majority of USGS websites may not be up to date and may not reflect current conditions. Websites displaying real-time data, such as Earthquake and Water and information needed for public health and safety will be updated with limited support. Additionally, USGS will not be able to respond to inquiries until appropriations are enacted. For more information, please see www.doi.gov/shutdown

Data and Tools
Find current and historical data for streamflow, groundwater, water quality, and other topics.
This data set includes summary statistics and trend analysis results of various analytes from groundwater samples in Idaho (1990 to 2016).
This dataset is a compilation of data obtained from the Idaho Department of Water Quality, the Idaho Department of Water Resources, and the Water Quality Portal. The 'Samples' table stores information about individual groundwater samples, including what was being sampled, when it was sampled, the results of the sample, etc. This table is related to the 'MonitoringLocation' table (which...
Spearman's rank correlation between analytes from Idaho groundwater samples collected from 1990 to 2016
This table includes Spearman correlation statistics for associations between pairs of analytes.
This dataset is a compilation of data obtained from the Idaho Department of Water Quality, the Idaho Department of Water Resources, and the Water Quality Portal. The 'MonitoringLocation' table stores attribute data for groundwater wells. This table is related to the 'SiteID' table (which lists the variety of names given to each well by different organizations) and the 'Samples' table (which...
Groundwater is an important source of drinking and irrigation water throughout Idaho, and groundwater quality is monitored by various Federal, State, and local agencies. The historical, multi-agency records of groundwater quality include a valuable dataset that has yet to be compiled or analyzed on a statewide level. The purpose of this study is to combine groundwater-quality data from...
Analyte maximum contaminant level (MCL) exceedances in Idaho groundwater samples collected from 1990 to 2016
This table summarizes the number of times samples from a location have exceeded an EPA-mandated maximum contaminant level (MCL) since 1990.
Water Use by Source and Category in Idaho Counties are compiled as part of the "Estimated Use of Water in the United States" series of U.S. Geological Survey Circular reports that have been published every 5 years since 1950 (Maupin and others, 2014). Idaho withdrawals in 2015 are being published as a separate dataset in support of the U.S. Geological Survey fact sheet 2018-3036.
In 2009, the Kootenai Tribe of Idaho released and implemented the Kootenai River Habitat Restoration Master Plan. This plan aimed to restore, enhance, and maintain the Kootenai River habitat and landscape to support and sustain habitat conditions for aquatic species and animal populations. In support of these restoration efforts, the U.S. Geological Survey, in cooperation with the Kootenai...
Water budget components for 17 hydrologic regions of the United States which contain tribal lands and for the tribal lands within each of these regions. All values represent an average year based upon the years 1971-2000, and are the result of a combined analysis of national datasets.
This dataset is a compilation of data obtained from the Idaho Department of Water Quality, the Idaho Department of Water Resources, and the Water Quality Portal. The 'SiteID' table catalogues organization-specific identification numbers assigned to each monitoring location.
To begin filling data gaps for development of a Treasure Valley groundwater-flow model, we installed 10 new real-time streamgages on drains along the lower Boise River from Eagle to Parma. The streamgages will monitor the amount of shallow groundwater the aquifer system discharges to surface...
