The USGS Ohio-Kentucky-Indiana Water Science Center provides reliable hydrologic and water-related ecological information to aid in the understanding of the use and management of water resources in Ohio, Kentucky, Indiana, and the Nation.
Super gages provide real-time data specifically designed to improve the understanding of watershed processes and address specific water-resource issues such as climate and land-use effects, water-related human health issues, floods and droughts.What is a SuperGage?
Harmful Algal blooms
Large quantities of cyanobacteria can create harmful algal blooms (HABs). In addition to ruining the natural beauty of lakes and streams, HABs can be toxic to humans, wildlife, and aquatic organisms.HABS
