Real-Time Water Data DLESE Reviewed Collection
This site provides access to streamflow data for USGS (United States Geological Survey) streamflow monitoring sites around the United States. The data can be searched using an interactive map or by state. Most stations report Station Number, Station Name, long-term median flow, present flow stage, present water temperature, and the date and time of the last entry. Most stations also have stream flow statistics for the period of record including the latest flow, minimum flow, maximum flow, mean flow, and exceedance probabilities. Many stations also have links to the station description, annual peak streamflow data, and other historical data.
