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.

Water-level change data used to map water-level changes in the High Plains aquifer, 2013 to 2015

The High Plains aquifer extends from south of about 32 degrees to almost 44 degrees north latitude and from about 96 degrees 30 minutes to 106 degrees west longitude. The aquifer underlies about 175,000 square miles in parts of Colorado, Kansas, Nebraska, New Mexico, Oklahoma, South Dakota, Texas, and Wyoming. This digital data set is the water-level measurements from 7,526 well

Streambed sediment data for Missouri and Niobrara Rivers, Nebraska and South Dakota, 2015--List and brief description of samples collected for exploratory proppant testing

Deltaic sand deposits at the head of Lewis and Clark Lake, Nebraska-South Dakota were investigated for suitability for use as a proppant feedstock resource in unconventional oil or gas production. The physical characteristics of the deposits are described in four supplemental data sets in varied file formats. First, for the direct-push cores collected at four sandbar complexes in the Misso...

Water-Quality Data for Nebraska

Chemical, physical, and biological properties of water, sediment, and tissue samples from Nebraska. Water-quality data are collected as either discrete field measurements or as continuous time-series data from automated recorders that continuously record physical and chemical characteristics including pH, specific conductance, temperature, and dissolved oxygen.

Groundwater Data for Nebraska

Data from wells, springs, test holes, tunnels, drains, and excavations in Nebraska; well location data includes information such as latitude and longitude, well depth, and aquifer. Groundwater level data are collected and stored as either discrete field-water-level measurements or as continuous time-series data from automated recorders.

Surface-Water Data for Nebraska

Real-time, daily, peak-flow, field measurements, and statistics of current and historical data that describe stream levels, streamflow (discharge), reservoir and lake levels, surface-water quality, and rainfall in Nebraska. Surface-water data are collected and stored as either discrete field-water-level measurements or as continuous time-series data from automated recorders.

Nebraska Continuous Water-Quality Network on WaterQualityWatch

The Nebraska Continuous Water-Quality Network is part of USGS WaterQualityWatch. This web site provides maps that track short-term changes in water quality. Temperature, specific conductance, pH, dissolved oxygen, turbidity, nitrate, discharge, chlorophyll, and surrogate data are available.

Nebraska Real-Time Water Quality on National Real-Time Water Quality

Real-time computed concentrations of water-quality constituents such as suspended sediment, total nitrogen, and total phosphorus are calculated using ordinary least squares regression models. The results of these models, along with direct water-quality measurements, can be viewed here as time-series graphs, or downloaded as tabular data.
