Due to a lapse in appropriations, the majority of USGS websites may not be up to date and may not reflect current conditions. Websites displaying real-time data, such as Earthquake and Water and information needed for public health and safety will be updated with limited support. Additionally, USGS will not be able to respond to inquiries until appropriations are enacted. For more information, please see www.doi.gov/shutdown
Data and Tools
Get current water conditions that are important to you, such as water levels, streamflow, temperatures, and more.
To begin filling data gaps for development of a Treasure Valley groundwater-flow model, we installed 10 new real-time streamgages on drains along the lower Boise River from Eagle to Parma. The streamgages will monitor the amount of shallow groundwater the aquifer system discharges to surface...
Data from wells, springs, test holes, tunnels, drains, and excavations in Washington; well location data includes information such as latitude and longitude, well depth, and aquifer. Groundwater level data are collected and stored as either discrete field-water-level measurements or as continuous time-series data from automated recorders.
Chemical, physical, and biological properties of water, sediment, and tissue samples from Washington. Water-quality data are collected as either discrete field measurements or as continuous time-series data from automated recorders that continuously record physical and chemical characteristics including pH, specific conductance, temperature, and dissolved oxygen.
Willamette River at Portland, OR, is one of the most extensively monitoring streams in the US. The monitor located at the Morrsion Bridge in downtown Portland measures thirteen real-time parameters.
WaterQualityWatch (http://waterwatch.usgs.gov/wqwatch/) is a USGS web site that 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,...
Want to know what's happening right now? Request real-time information from any USGS streamgage with the USGS WaterNow text service. This service responds to your text message with information about the current stage, streamflow, or other parameters collected at the gage.
Annual Water Data Reports were published annually for many decades as static archival products that supplemented direct access to current and historical water data provided by the National Water Information System (NWIS). This site helps users access historical Water Data Reports, electronic Site Data Sheets, or current on-demand, print-ready Water-Year Summaries.
The USGS StreamStats website is a GIS-based web tool for estimating streamflows at gaged and ungaged locations. Features similar to the National Streamflow Statistics program are presented to users with no programs to install. Users can visit the StreamStats website linked here and click on a stream location on the interactive map to compute estimated streamflows for floods and other...
