USGS Water and Fire Technicians team members, Jorge Gonzalez and Efren Alvarado, made repairs to the Buck Mountain precipitation gage during the Blue 2 Fire near Alto, New Mexico on June 7, 2024. This station, along with similar gages, provides critical real-time rainfall data to the National Weather Service and local emergency managers.

This is an animation showing the changing conditions relative to the historic record of USGS streamgages from January 1, 2024 to March 31, 2024. The river conditions shown range from the driest condition seen at a gage (red open circles) to the wettest (blue closed circles). A purple outer ring around a gage indicates it is flooding.

The Water Data for the Nation (WDFN) team updated the public and other stakeholders on changes to USGS water quality and samples data access. Legacy access to water-quality and samples data are being retired, and new WDFN pages and features will provide access to discrete water quality and sample data.

U.S. Geological Survey scientists created an interactive map to help the public better understand their risk of exposure to PFAS, also known as “forever chemicals.” This interactive tool allows you to view data from a recently published USGS study on PFAS in tap water as well as learn where known PFAS sources are near your community.

The St. Mary and Milk Rivers cross the U.S. and Canadian border and supply water to both countries. Managing that resource in the interest of both nations is a matter of international collaboration and cooperation, and Landsat data is helping offer objective information on water use.

Groundwater is not a single vast pool of underground water; rather, it is contained within a variety of aquifer systems. Each of these aquifers has its own set of questions and challenges.
