Nebraska Water Science Center

Data and Tools

Continuous and discrete surface-water, groundwater, and water-quality data are collected to provide long-term hydrologic records critical to investigating hydrology, modeling climate-change, evaluating natural and anthropogenic changes in the hydrologic regime, and providing information on water availability to water managers.

Modeling Escherichia coli in the Missouri River near Omaha, Nebraska, 2012-16: Model Inputs and Outputs

This data release contains the inputs and outputs from the development of Escherichia coli (E. coli) concentration models for the four Missouri River sites near Omaha, Nebraska. Model development, models, and results are published in the associated U.S. Geological Survey (USGS)report Densmore and others, 2020. Load Estimator models (LOADEST) (Runkel and others, 2004) w

Modeling Escherichia coli in the Missouri River near Omaha, Nebraska, 2012-16: Model Outputs

These datasets are outputs from LOADEST regression models for estimating Escherichia coli (E. coli) concentration in the Missouri River at four sites near Omaha, Nebraska. The datasets described by this metadata are yearly (both water year, Mar - Nov, and recreation season, May - Sept) and daily E. coli concentrations predicted using developed LOADEST models. The development of

Modeling Escherichia coli in the Missouri River near Omaha, Nebraska, 2012-16: Model Inputs

These datasets are inputs to LOADEST regression models for estimating E. coli concentration in the Missouri River at four sites near Omaha, Nebraska. The datasets described by this metadata are daily data and include precipitation data and Long Term Control Plan (LTCP) progress (projects completed and combined sewer overflows [CSO] upstream of the sampling site) data.

Water Balance Monitoring Data for Two Biorentention Gardens in Omaha, Nebraska 2011-17

This data release includes stormwater inflow, outflow, and subsurface storage data for two bioretention gardens located in Omaha, Nebraska. Additionally, two additional datasets are included which contain meteorology and evapotranspiration data for each site. These sites were located at the Douglas County Health Center (DCHC), and the Eastern Nebraska Office on Aging (ENOA).
