New York 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.

Stream and Lake Average Water-Level Altitudes, April-May 2016

Continuous records of water level altitude at 15 U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) streamgaging stations (13 streams, 1 lake and 1 pond) were retrieved from the National Water Information System (NWIS) and averaged for the months of April and May, 2016. This shapefile consists of the locations of those sites and includes water level altitude data stored in the attribute table. The shapefile was...

Approximate Regional Groundwater Divide on Long Island, New York, April-May 2016

This groundwater divide feature was approximated from and interpolated water table raster for Long Island, April-May 2016. Generally, the highest altitudes of the water table were used to draw the groundwater divide, which implies the groundwater flow direction. The feature is presented in Sheet 1 of Scientific Investigations Map 3398.

Water Table Data in the Upper Glacial and Magothy Aquifers, April-May 2016

Water level altitudes were measured at 275 observation wells and 1 supply well screened in the upper glacial and Magothy aquifers during April and May of 2016. This shapefile consists of the locations of those sites and includes water level altitude data stored in the attribute table. The shapefile was created and intended for use with geographic information system (GIS) software. The...

Potentiometric Surface Contours of the Lloyd and North Shore Aquifers, April-May 2016

This polyline shapefile consists of digital contours that represent the potentiometric-surface altitude of water in the Lloyd and contiguous North Shore aquifer beneath Nassau and Suffolk Counties, Long Island, New York. The U.S. Geological Survey constructed a potentiometric-surface altitude map using ground-water levels measured in the Lloyd and North Shore aquifers during the spring of 2016...

Water Table Contours in the Upper Glacial and Magothy Aquifers, April-May 2016

This polyline shapefile consists of digital contours that represent the water table altitude in the upper glacial and Magothy aquifer beneath Long Island, New York. The U.S. Geological Survey constructed a water table altitude map using ground-water levels measured in the upper glacial and Magothy aquifers during the spring of 2016. Contours were constructed at a scale of 1:125,000 from water-...
