Monitoring

USGS Texas Water Science Center scientists collect hydrologic data and scientific information across the state to provide information needed to understand water resources in Texas. Monitoring studies include the real-time data from our streamgaging, well, and water-quality networks, as well as monitoring to answer specific, local water resource questions. Some monitoring studies are short-term and local; other studies are multi-year to decadal, examining long-term water availability and water-quality issues.
