From the Coeur d'Alene River basin in the panhandle to the Idaho National Laboratory in the southeast, we work with Federal, state, local, tribal, and private sector partners to monitor and study the quality of Idaho's water resources.
We also provide real-time water-quality data from monitoring sites throughout Idaho.
Our monthly Idaho Hydrologic Update helps you stay informed about Idaho's water resources. Each month, we summarize significant findings from our hydrologic data networks; announce new studies; and let you know how we support our local, state, Federal, and tribal partners with reliable, unbiased science.

More than two dozen Idaho streamgages offer more than 100 years of water data. Click the Centennial Streamgage badge below to access data from these streamgages.
Our scientists at the Idaho National Laboratory collected groundwater samples from 31 wells at or near the Idaho Nuclear Technology and Engineering Center (INTEC). The samples were analyzed for purgeable organic compounds (POCs). Results of the analyses will help the U.S. Department of Energy to evaluate whether purge water from wells located downgradient of the INTEC must be treated as a Resource Conservation and Recovery Act listed waste.
At what concentrations would certain constituents occur in eastern Snake River Plain groundwater if radioactive waste had never been buried or wastewater had never been discharged at the Idaho National Laboratory? In this report, those background concentrations are identified. The U.S. Department of Energy will use the information to determine if former disposal sites are reaching cleanup goals.
