2012 SPARROW Models for the Southeast: Total Phosphorus, Total Nitrogen, Suspended Sediment, and Streamflow

SPARROW model results of mean daily streamflow and average annual total nitrogen, total phosphorus and suspended sediment load in Southeast US streams. The simulated streamflow represents long-term average source inputs and hydrologic conditions from 1999 to 2014. The simulated loads represent source inputs similar to 2012 and normalized to long-term average hydrologic conditions from 1999 to 2014

2012 SPARROW Models for the Midwest: Total Phosphorus, Total Nitrogen, Suspended Sediment, and Streamflow

SPARROW model results of mean daily streamflow and average annual total nitrogen, total phosphorus and suspended sediment load in Midwest US streams. The simulated streamflow represents long-term average source inputs and hydrologic conditions from 1999 to 2014. The simulated loads represent source inputs similar to 2012 and normalized to long-term average hydrologic conditions from 1999 to 2014.

Midcontinent 2002 Nutrient Loading in Canada and the United States

SPARROW model results of long-term mean-annual total nitrogen and total phosphorus in streams of the Midcontinental Region of North America. The simulated loads represent source inputs similar to 2002 and normalized to long-term average hydrologic conditions for the period from 1970 to through 2012.

WaterWatch (surface water)

WaterWatch displays maps, graphs, and tables describing real-time, recent, and past streamflow conditions for the United States, including flood and droughts. Real-time information generally is updated on an hourly basis.

Hydrologic Unit Maps

The U.S. is sub-divided into successively smaller hydrologic units which are classified into four levels: regions, sub-regions, accounting units, and cataloging units. Each unit is identified by a unique hydrologic unit code (HUC) consisting of two to eight digits based on its classification. This site provides information and data for current and historical hydrologic units, names, and numbers.

USGS Flood Event Viewer

During large, short-term events, the USGS collects streamflow and additional data (including storm tide, wave height, high-water marks, and additional sensor deployments) to aid in documenting flood events. The USGS Flood Event Viewer provides convenient, map-based access to downloadable event-based data.

USGS Mobile Water Data

The USGS Mobile Water Data site highlights USGS current conditions water data in a mobile-friendly website, allowing users to monitor conditions at a favorite river or stream or locate nearby monitoring locations. All USGS current conditions water data is available.

Federal Priority Streamgages (FPS)

This mapper identifies USGS Federal Priority Streamgages (FPS). FPS are monitoring stations that track the amount of water in streams and rivers across the Nation to meet long-term federal information needs. They are strategically positioned to serve as a backbone for the larger National Streamflow Network that is operated in cooperation with over 1,200 federal, state, tribal, and local agencies.

Delaware River Dashboard

Created for the Office of the Delaware River Master and supporting the USGS Next Generation Water Observing System Delaware River pilot, the Delaware River Dashboard shows provisional real-time water data collected at USGS observation stations in context with weather-related data from other public sources.
