Seven water-quality parameters are monitored and plotted with depth over time for two locations on Bear Lake each season. Data is sent through cellular service at synchronized intervals to the USGS National Water Information System (NWIS), where it is stored. The stored data is then reviewed, consolidated, and pushed to interactive data visualizations weekly.
The National Water Dashboard (NWD) is a mobile, interactive tool that provides real-time information on water levels, weather, and flood forecasts - all in one place on a computer, smartphone, or other mobile device. The NWD presents real-time stream, lake and reservoir, precipitation, and groundwater data from more than 13,500 USGS observation stations across the country.
