WaterQualityWatch

WaterQualityWatch provides access to real-time water-quality data collected at more than 2,000 stream sites throughout the United States, including streamflow, water temperature, specific conductance, pH, dissolved oxygen, turbidity, and nitrate.

NWIS Current Water Data for the Nation (Real-Time Data)

The USGS provides real-time or near-real-time conditions water data at sites across the Nation. Current data typically are recorded at 15- to 60-minute intervals, stored onsite, and then transmitted to USGS offices every 1 to 4 hours, depending on the data relay technique used. Recording and transmission times may be more frequent during critical events.

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.

Colorado River Basin Science & Technology

A geonarrative introducing an integrated approach to improve efficiency and delivery of actionable USGS drought science using advanced information technology.

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.

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.

Federal Priority Streamgages (FPS) Mapper

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.

Multisource Water-Quality Trends in the Delaware River Basin

Water quality is essential for understanding water availability by providing insights into the drivers of change and possible availability constraints. Using data from eight monitoring organizations including the USGS, the Multisource Water-Quality Trends in the Delaware River Basin mapper shows changing water-quality trends from 2008-2018 in rivers and streams across the Delaware River Basin.

North American Bat Monitoring Program (NABat) Partner Portal

NABat is an international and interagency program that aims to conserve North American bat populations by providing standardized survey data from across the continent.

Lowell Minor Planet Services - asteroid.lowell.edu

The USGS Astrogeology Science Center has collaborated with Lowell Observatory to create a graphical interface for their main asteroid characterization web portal. The portal uses data from the astorb database maintained by Lowell Minor Planet Services.

Fire Danger Viewer, Map and Data Products

The Map and Data Products page offers bulk download of the Fire Danger Forecast data suite.

Georgia Water Use

The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) South Atlantic Water Science Center and the Environmental Protection Division of the Georgia Department of Natural Resources have been collecting and compiling water-use information in Georgia since 1980 as part of an ongoing cooperative agreement.
