Utah lies geographically at the apex of early western explorations, and the USGS has a long legacy in this state that abounds with natural wonders.
The Utah Water Resources Branch of the U.S. Geological Survey, then in its infancy, became official in 1913. It would become the Utah Water Resources Division and later the Utah Water Science Center.
The Utah Water Science Center offers real-time discharge at more than 150 gages statewide, monitors water levels across a statewide network annually, and engages in many relevant and unbiased scientific studies and modeling efforts.
