Flooded street. Click to go to WaterAlert.

Whether you are a first responder, researcher, or outdoor recreationalist, WaterAlert can send alerts for the surface water, groundwater, and precipitation thresholds you care most about.

May-June 2014 streamflow

Use the WaterWatch animation builder to show streamflow and flood conditions over time.

Email and Text Alerts and Mobile Water Data

WaterAlert

Click a WaterAlert site to get data for active surface water, groundwater, and precipitation sites. Then subscribe to automatic alerts for thresholds you define.

WaterNow

Text or e-mail a USGS site identification number to waternow@usgs.gov and WaterNow will reply with that site's current conditions.

National Water Information System for Mobile Devices

The mobile version (beta) of our most popular data-retrieval tool is just a tap away. Get the most recent measurements—streamflow, gage height, water quality, groundwater levels, and rain—for hundreds of active data-collection sites across the State.

Surface Water

WaterWatch

Use WaterWatch tools to compare current, 7-day, 14-day, 28-day, and monthly average streamflow with historical streamflow for the same period.

Hydromet—Reservoir Storage

The U.S. Bureau of Reclamation provides information about reservoir storage, reservoir levels, and boat ramp elevations. They also provide links to information about area recreational sites.

Surface-Water Data for Idaho

National Water Information System's surface-water data includes automated and manual measurements for lake levels, streamflow, and streamgage height (stream stage). Select from current data; historical data; daily summaries; daily, monthly, and annual statistics; or peak-flow data.

Interact with the data by plotting multiple sites on one graph. Even sign up for automatic alerts for thresholds you select.


StreamStats

Find streamflow statistics, drainage-basin characteristics, and other information for user-selected sites on streams with StreamStats.

Click to go to the StreamStats Website

Groundwater

Groundwater Watch

Click to go to the Groundwater Watch Web site
Use Groundwater Watch to access groundwater statistics that are grouped for a variety of objectives.

Groundwater Data for Idaho

National Water Information System's groundwater data includes site descriptions, well depth, and depth-to-water measurements. Select from current data; historical data; daily summaries; daily, monthly, and annual statistics; or manual field measurements.

Interact with the data by plotting multiple sites on one graph. Even sign up for automatic alerts for thresholds you select.

Water Quality

Water-Quality Data for Idaho

National Water Information System lets you access current and historical records related to the chemical, physical, and biological properties of water; sediment; and tissue samples from Idaho and across the Nation.

WaterQualityWatch

Use the WaterQualityWatch options to view map depictions of real-time water temperature, specific conductance, pH, dissolved oxygen, turbidity, and discharge.

Drought and Floods

WaterWatch: Drought

Below normal 7-day average streamflow. Click to go to the Drought Watch Website



Use WaterWatch's tools to compare current, 7-day, 14-day, 28-day below-normal streamflow conditions to historical conditions for the same period.

Also available: duration hydrographs for individual sites and state-wide conditions, map of record low 7-day streamflow, regional map comparisons for dates you select, 7-day flow condition data in table format, and a cumulative streamflow hydrograph builder for sites and dates you select.


WaterWatch: Flood

A map depiction of current flood and high-flow conditions. Hover over each site symbol to see individual flood statistics. Or use the other WaterWatch tools to build custom tables and charts related to historical flood data.

National Weather Service River Forecast

The National Weather Service combines our streamflow measurements with their weather forecasts to develop river forecasts.

Aquatic Biology

BioData

Click to go to the BioData Website

BioData provides access to bioassessment data collected by the USGS from streams across the nation. We are in the process of importing data from Idaho's Fish On-line.

Fish On-Line

Click to go to the Fish On-line Website

"Fish On"-Line was the management and delivery system for aquatic biological monitoring data from Idaho that preceded BioData. (1990-2006)

Field/Lab Samples

Click to go to the NWIS Website

National Water Information System's water-quality data includes records for field and laboratory analyses of water samples, biological tissue, sediments, or other environmental samples.

Geospatial

EROS Center

The Earth Resources Observation and Science Center acquires, archives, and provides access to remotely sensed land data and imagery to better understand our Earth.

Earthquake Hazards Program

Get real-time and historical earthquake information.

Geolog Archive

Our INL Project Office maintains geophysical log files for selected boreholes in southeast Idaho.

Water Use

Water Use in the United States

Every five years, the USGS compiles county-level water-use data in its national water-use data system.

Water-Use Data for Idaho

National Water Information System's water-use data are reported by source, category, and area type. The water-use data presented here are the current best estimates, and may have been revised from previous publications.
