Oregon Water Science Center

Data and Tools

We collect data from Oregon lakes and streams, groundwater, landscapes, and ecosystems. Here's where you can access the information we've gathered, including our Oregon Monthly Water Availability Report.

Water Data

Surface Water

Surface Water

Streamflow measurements are vital to understanding stream conditions. We monitor over 200 streams in Oregon.

Streamflow Data

Water Quality

Water Quality

Monitoring water quality is important for protecting human and ecosystem health. We monitor rivers, streams, and lakes around the state.

Water-Quality Data

Groundwater

Groundwater

The USGS monitors groundwater levels throughout much of Oregon. The data are used to determine sustainable pumping rates for irrigation and domestic supplies.

Boat-based water-surface elevation surveys along the upper Willamette River, Oregon, in March, 2015

Water-surface elevation measurements were collected in March 2015 along the upper Willamette River, Oregon, between Eugene to Corvallis. These datasets were collected for equipment calibration and validation for the NASA Surface Water and Ocean Topography (SWOT) satellite mission.

Boat-based water-surface elevation surveys along the upper Willamette River, Oregon, in March, 2015

Water-surface elevation measurements were collected in March 2015 along the upper Willamette River, Oregon, between Eugene to Corvallis. These surveys were collected over a small range of discharges using a real time kinematic global positioning system (RTK-GPS) on a motorboat traveling "on plane" along the river. These datasets were collected for equipment calibration and validation for the...

Stream Suspended Sediment Loads in Western Oregon and Northwest California (2012)

This ASCII file contains mean annual suspended-sediment loads predicted for western Oregon and northwestern California and the relative contribution to those loads from different types of upstream lithology. These suspended-sediment predictions can be joined to the NHDPlus v.2 hydrography (COMID), allowing users to perform additional analysis and create their own map products.

Chemicals of emerging and legacy concern in tissues of white sturgeon (Acipenser transmontanus) in the Columbia River near Hanford, WA (2009)

This dataset contains concentrations of 25 organochlorine pesticides, 6 industrial or personal care products, 6 polybrominated diphenyl ether (PBDE) flame retardant congeners, and 15 polychlorinated biphenyl (PCB) congeners in brain, muscle, gonad, and liver tissues of white sturgeon (Acipenser transmontanus). All concentrations are reported on a wet-weight basis. Fish samples were collected...

Evapotranspiration in the Upper Klamath Basin for the 2013 Growing Season (April - October)

The evapotranspiration (ET) datasets were created under contract for this study by the University of Idaho. A high-resolution remote sensing technique known as Mapping Evapotranspiration at High Resolution and Internalized Calibration (METRIC) was used to create estimates of the spatial distribution of ET.
