Pennsylvania Water Science Center

Data and Tools

USGS Pennsylvania Water Science Center operates about 580 real-time data collection sites in Pennsylvania for acquiring information on surface water, groundwater, water quality, and precipitation. These sites provide near real-time data via satellite communication and these data are provided to the public through the National Water Information System as well as through many USGS web applications.
