Stream Science in Texas - Overview

Science Center Objects

Texas has 15 river basins, 8 coastal basins, and more than 100 secondary streams. These rivers and streams play a vital role for communities and ecosystems across Texas by providing water for drinking, recreation, and irrigation; recharging aquifers; aquatic life; and transporting sediment and nutrients. The USGS Texas Water Science Center (TXWSC) collects data and has science projects at several streams and their watersheds. Visit the links below for more information on our data and science.
