Due to a lapse in appropriations, the majority of USGS websites may not be up to date and may not reflect current conditions. Websites displaying real-time data, such as Earthquake and Water and information needed for public health and safety will be updated with limited support. Additionally, USGS will not be able to respond to inquiries until appropriations are enacted. For more information, please see www.doi.gov/shutdown
Welcome to the Texas Water Science Center
Science Center Objects
Welcome to the new website for the Texas Water Science Center! This redesign aligns the USGS Texas Water Science Center (TXWSC) with the national USGS design and presents a modernized and unified connection to all USGS science.
We would love to hear your thoughts about this new design - let us know if we improved things for you! Bookmarks to NWIS Web (water data) are unaffected. If you have a tx.usgs.gov bookmark, it will forward to the new website. If you have any questions or concerns about the redesign, or if you can't find what you are looking for, please reach out to us!
