Susquehanna River and Basin

Science Center Objects

In Pennsylvania, the USGS's water-resources roots date back to the late 1800's, with the initiation of streamflow gaging on the Susquehanna and Delaware Rivers and assessments of groundwater resources near Philadelphia. The USGS Pennsylvania Water Science Center continues to provide scientific information about the water resources of the Susquehanna River Basin, in cooperation with regional and local agencies and stakeholders, and with other USGS Water Science Centers and national programs. 

USGS national programs in the Susquehanne River Basin in Pennsylvania have inluded the National Water Quality Program and Chesapeake Bay Activities
