Real-Time Streamflow Data

The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) was established by an act of Congress on March 3, 1879, to provide a per­manent Federal agency to perform the systematic and scientific "classification of the public lands, and examination of the geologic structure, mineral resources, and products of the national domain." Surface-water activities of the USGS in Kansas are part of the Survey’s Water Mission Area’s...

Sediment Monitoring in the Neosho and Cottonwood River Basins

The USGS Kansas Water Science Center, in cooperation with the Kansas Water Office, maintains a sediment monitoring network on the Neosho and Cottonwood Rivers both up- and downstream from John Redmond Reservoir. The purpose of this network is to assess the sediment loads and trapping efficiency of John Redmond Reservoir, and provide data to state agencies to determine the effect of streambank...

Water-Quality Monitoring in the Lower Kansas River Basin

The Kansas River is a primary source of drinking water for about 800,000 people in northeastern Kansas. Water-quality concerns related to excessive nutrient, bacteria, and sediment concentrations have been identified by the Kansas Department of Health and Environment. Additionally, the occurrence and transport of cyanobacteria (also called blue-green algae), associated toxins, and taste-and-odor...

Equus Beds Recharge Project

The water supply for the city of Wichita, south-central Kansas, currently comes from the Equus Beds aquifer and Cheney Reservoir. Because these sources are not expected to meet projected city water needs into the 21st century (Warren and others, 1995), artificial recharge of the Equus Beds aquifer was investigated as one alternative to meet future water-supply demands. An additional potential...
