USGS Klamath River Basin Mapper

Explore an interactive map of USGS stream gages in the Klamath basin. These gages belong to a sediment network established to monitor suspended-sediment movement from Keno dam to the estuary. 

USGS Upper Klamath Basin Well Mapper

This mapper identifies wells that are monitored in the Upper Klamath Basin Oregon and California by U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), Oregon Water Resources Department (OWRD), and California Department of Water Resources (CDWR). This web page provides access to current and historic groundwater-level data collected by those agencies, as well as water-level graphs and maps.

USGS Klamath River Basin Water-Quality Mapper

The Klamath River Basin Water-Quality Mapper allows users to explore and access water-quality data from the Klamath River Basin that were collected by the USGS and the Bureau of Reclamation. This web-based application provides access to hundreds of time series datasets and thousands of discrete sample results.

Oregon Lake Profile Analysis Tools

In response to recent harmful algal blooms (HABs) that have occurred in many of the large water storage reservoirs in the Willamette River Basin the USGS is measuring related water-quality parameters in Detroit Lake, Blue River Lake, and Cougar Lake. The USGS has also developed profiler tools that allow users to see how the water quality parameters vary with depth in those reservoirs.

Mapping tools for the 2012 SPARROW models for the Pacific region

SPARROW mappers are interactive tools that allow users to explore river streamflow and nutrient and sediment loads and yields and the importance of different sources of contaminants in a particular river basin. Data can be visualized using maps and interactive graphs and tables, and rankings can be shown by state, major watershed, hydrologic unit (HUC), and catchment.

StreamStats Application

StreamStats provides access to spatial analytical tools that are useful for water-resources planning and management, and for engineering and design purposes. The map-based user interface can be used to delineate drainage areas, get basin characteristics and estimates of flow statistics, and more. Available information varies from state to state.

Flood Inundation Mapper

USGS Flood Inundation Maps, along with Internet information regarding current stage from the USGS streamgage, provide emergency management personnel and residents with information that is critical for flood-response activities, such as evacuations and road closures, as well as for post-flood recovery efforts.

Wapato Lake Interactive Lake Level Tool

The water level of Wapato Lake dictates the size (surface area) of the lake and the amount of water that it stores. This web page allows the user to interactively explore Wapato Lake water level data and how the water level translates into lake area and volume.

Depth to Groundwater in the Portland, Oregon, Area

An interactive map provides access to estimates of depth-to-water and water-table elevation for the Portland, Oregon, metropolitan area, along with estimates of their relative uncertainty. 

Photographs of Willow Creek Reservoir near Heppner, OR
