A new online fact sheet published by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) provides one-stop information on the organization's data sources for waterways across the United States. The database comprises information on the nation's streams, groundwater and water quality. Further, in cooperation with local, state and federal partners, the USGS operates about 7,400 streamgages nationwide and provides online access to water-resources data collected at over 1.5 million sites across the nation and other selected areas. Utility managers, industry leaders and the public rely upon such tools for information related to stream health, recreation and the protection of life and property during floods and drought. This new publication can help users quickly navigate the extensive sources of USGS water data available online.
