The Water Data for the Nation team updated the public and other stakeholders on the progress of modernizing key water data delivery products. This webinar took place on Monday, April 11th, 2022 at 12 pm ET/ 9 am PT.

In this webinar:

USGS Monitoring Location Pages provide the public direct access to the water data from across the nation that USGS collects. USGS WaterAlert is a notification service, alerting users based on the criteria they select, like if gage height is above flood stage.

NextGen Monitoring Location Pages went live in March. Legacy Current Conditions Pages are now planned to redirect to NextGen Monitoring Location Pages in September 2022 and Legacy Current Conditions Pages are planned to be decommissioned in July 2023.

NextGen WaterAlert: We are accepting requests for Early Access to NextGen WaterAlert beta from users that meet criteria ( NextGen WaterAlert transition period for all users is anticipated to open in June (summer) 2022 and close when NextGen WaterAlert goes live in the late summer / early fall (anticipated August 2022). Users must transition their alerts to the NextGen system during the designated 2-month transition window. After the transition window closes, legacy subscription information will no longer be accessible. In this circumstance, users can re-create their alerts from scratch in the new system. The timeline for transition is estimated and may be subject to change – check this blog ( for the most up to date and accurate information about the WaterAlert transition.
