Water-quality data for New York

Chemical, physical, and biological properties of water, sediment, and tissue samples from New York. Water-quality data are collected as either discrete field measurements or as continuous time-series data from automated recorders.

Water Quality Watch New York

Water Quality Watch provides access to real time water-quality data collected in surface waters throughout the United States as part of the USGS mission to describe water resources. Measurements include streamflow (through WaterWatch) water temperature, specific conductance, pH, dissolved oxygen, turbidity, and nitrate.

Water-Quality Monitor Network in Michigan

The USGS operates a network of real-time water-quality monitoring stations that measure up to five physical parameters. The parameters are temperature, specific conductance, pH, dissolved oxygen, and turbidity. One to four of those parameters are measured at 26 sites, while all five parameters are measured at 13 sites.

Kentucky Water-Quality Data

At selected surface-water and groundwater sites, the USGS maintains instruments that continuously record physical and chemical characteristics of the water including pH, specific conductance, temperature, dissolved oxygen, and percent dissolved-oxygen saturation. Supporting data such as air temperature and barometric pressure are also available at some sites.

Kentucky Groundwater Data

Groundwater level data are collected and stored as either discrete field-water-level measurements or as continuous time-series data from automated recorders. Data from some of the continuous record stations are relayed to USGS offices nationwide through telephone lines or by satellite transmissions.

Indiana Water-Quality Data

At selected surface-water and groundwater sites, the USGS maintains instruments that continuously record physical and chemical characteristics of the water including pH, specific conductance, temperature, dissolved oxygen, and percent dissolved-oxygen saturation. Supporting data such as air temperature and barometric pressure are also available at some sites.

Indiana Groundwater Data

More than 300,000 water wells have been drilled in Indiana. Many municipalities, as well as individual residences, obtain their water from such wells. Even though Indiana receives about 40 inches of rainfall each year, ground water is increasingly important for agricultural irrigation, as well as indsutries and rural households.
