Currently, data collection activities at these sites (map) are funded jointly by the USG S and partner agencies through the USGS Cooperative Water Program. Lack of partner funding for these sites will result in discontinuation of all monitoring activities. Questions or concerns can be directed to Jon Dillow (jjdillow@usgs.gov; 443-498-5524).
