Texas Water Science Center
Data and Tools
USGS Texas Water Science Center operates about 850 real-time data collection sites in Texas for acquiring information on surface-water, groundwater, water-quality, and precipitation. These sites provide real-time data via satellite, radio, cellphone communication, and enable public access to the data on the Web.
Links to our most popular data networks are available in the carousel above and in the Data Networks section below. A comprehensive list of data networks, tools and viewers for accessing data, and data products associated with studies follows.
Monitor current conditions with the Texas Water Dashboard or find water-levels near you with Water On-The-Go. Follow @USGS_TexasFlood and @USGS_TexasRain on Twitter for water level and precipitation data during flooding or severe rainfall.Texas Flood Watch
TXWSC continuously monitors streams and rivers, reservoirs, and selected aquifers. Long-term records can be used to evaluate current conditions to determine occurrence and extent of drought.Texas Drought Watch
Depth to Groundwater Measured from Wells Completed in the Chicot, Evangeline, and Jasper Aquifers, Houston-Galveston Region, Texas, 2018
This dataset documents for 2018 the depth to groundwater measured in wells screened in the Chicot, Evangeline, and Jasper aquifers in the Houston‐Galveston region, Texas.
The Geolog Locator allows users to search more than 7,000 digital borehole geophysical logs at over 1,700 locations. Users like hydrogeologists, groundwater hydrologists, and geologists can search and explore the online database, which primarily includes information collected by the USGS, as well some data compiled from other sources with permission.
In the immediate aftermath of Hurricane Harvey, the USGS and FEMA worked together to document the storm event in southeastern Texas and southwestern Louisiana. This data release contains the flood inundation polygons, flood-depth rasters, mapped boundaries, and high-water mark (HWM) locations for the selected river basins...
“Water On-the-Go” is a map-based web application that gives people easy access to current conditions in streams across Texas. It was developed to help raise water awareness during floods and normal conditions. The mobile-friendly website offers three ways to view streamflow or other data, including using your phone’s GPS system.
Water-Quality Data Characterizing the San Antonio Segment of the Edwards Aquifer With an Emphasis on Processes Influencing Nutrient and Pesticide Concentrations and Factors Affecting Aquifer Vulnerability, 2010-2016
This data release documents water-quality data collected from April 2010 through December 2016 by the U.S. Geological Survey in cooperation with the San Antonio Water System from across the San Antonio segment of the Edwards aquifer with particular emphasis on nutrients and pesticides.
This U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) Data Release provides phytoplankton data collected from 18 Texas reservoirs during August through October, 2016. Phytoplankton were identified to the lowest possible taxonomic level and abundance (density reported as both natural units and cells) and biovolume are reported.
14.86 km Profiles of the Electric and Self-potential Fields Measured in the Lower Guadalupe River Channel, Texas Interior Gulf Coastal Plain, September 2016
This data release consists of three geophysical data sets measured in the lower Guadalupe River channel, south-central Texas, and one supplementary geophysical data set measured in a laboratory.
