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.

Evapotranspiration in the Upper Klamath Basin for September 2013

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. The METRIC technique uses thermal infrared Landsat imagery to quantify actual evapo

Multi-stressor Predictive Models of Invertebrate Condition in the Corn Belt, U.S.A.

The data set includes the macroinvertebrate metrics calculated by IDAS software (Cuffney 2003, USGS OFR 03-172) for the Midwest Stream Quality Assessment (MSQA). Invert data is taxonomic data that has been summarized into variables called metrics that summarize various components of the taxonomic data. The original taxonomic data comes from USGS BioData.

Stream Nutrient Loads in the Pacific Northwest (2002)

This ASCII file contains the mean annual total nitrogen (TN) and total phosphorus (TP) loads predicted by the USGS SPARROW models developed for the Pacific Northwest and the relative contribution to those loads from different up-stream sources.These nutrient predictions can be joined to the NHDPlus v.2 hydrography (COMID), allowing users to perform additional analysis and create their own maps...

Alkalinity Calculator

The Alkalinity Calculator will analyze the titration curve and calculate the alkalinity or acid neutralizing capacity (ANC) of the sample using one or more of several different methods. Alkalinity is for filtered samples, while ANC is for unfiltered samples. The results will be displayed in tabular and graphical form.

Upper Klamath Basin Groundwater Sites

This web page provides access to current and historic groundwater-level data collected by monitoring partners, as well as water-level graphs and maps showing net water-level changes between any two time periods. Data for individual wells are filtered to remove measurements taken during active pumping because they do not accurately represent conditions in the aquifer.

North Santiam River Temperature Model

USGS personnel constructed, calibrated, and tested a model of flow and water temperature in the North Santiam and Santiam Rivers, Oregon. These rivers are major tributaries to the Willamette River, and have been listed as impaired by the Oregon Department of Environmental Quality (ODEQ) due to water temperatures that exceed the Oregon State water-quality standard.
