Water-Quality Changes in the Nation's Streams and Rivers

The trends mapper provides results from the largest-ever assessment of water-quality changes in the Nation's streams and rivers. More than 185 million water-quality records from over 600 Federal, State, Tribal, and local organizations were screened as part of this assessment.   

The mapper shows stream trends in water chemistry and aquatic ecology for four time periods from 1972-2012...

WaterAlert

The U.S. Geological Survey WaterAlert service sends e-mail or text (SMS) messages when certain parameters, as measured by a USGS real-time data-collection station, exceed user-definable thresholds. The development and maintenance of the WaterAlert system is supported by the USGS and its partners, including numerous federal, state, and local agencies.

USGS Flood Event Viewer

During large, short-term events, the USGS collects streamflow and additional data (including storm tide, wave height, high-water marks, and additional sensor deployments) to aid in documenting flood events. The USGS Flood Event Viewer provides convenient, map-based access to downloadable event-based data.

Estimated low-flow statistics at ungaged stream locations in New Jersey, water year 2018

Estimates of various low-flow statistics were computed at 51 ungaged stream locations throughout New Jersey during the 2018 water year using methods in the published reports, Streamflow Characteristics and Trends in New Jersey, Water Years 1897-2003 (Watson and others, 2005) and Implementation of MOVE.1, Censored MOVE.1, and Piecewise MOVE.1 Low-Flow Regressions with Applications at Partial-...

USGS Surface-Water Data for New Jersey

Nationally, USGS surface-water data includes more than 850,000 station years of time-series data that describe stream levels, streamflow (discharge), reservoir and lake levels, surface-water quality, and rainfall. The data are collected by automatic recorders and manual field measurements at installations across the Nation.

USGS Groundwater Data for New Jersey

The Ground-Water database contains ground-water site inventory, ground-water level data, and water-quality data. Additional ground-water information for New Jersey is available at the New Jersey Water Science Center web page. This page includes geologic maps, a description of the aquifers in New Jersey, and references to selected ground-water reports.

USGS Water-Quality Data for New Jersey

At selected surface-water and ground-water sites, the USGS maintains instruments that continuously record physical and chemical characteristics of the water including pH, specific conductance, temperature, dissolved oxygen, turbidity, and percent dissolved-oxygen saturation. At sites where this information is transmitted automatically, data are available from the real-time data system.

Surface-Water Quality Summary

The purpose of this report is to summarize selected ambient surface-water-quality data collected cooperatively by the USGS and New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection (NJDEP). Data on the physical characteristics and (or) water-quality constituents in samples collected at surface-water and bed-sediment stations are presented in figures and tables.
