NOTICE (05/01/2013) -- Funding dropped for USGS monitoring network in the five boroughs of New York City.
Data collection from 197 groundwater stations, 10 surface-water stations, 1 meteorological station, and 131 water-quality stations in the five boroughs of New York and extreme western Nassau County was suspended May 1, 2013 due to elimination of the program by a funding partner. Historic data from these stations will continue to be available on the USGS National Water Information System: Web Interface. A complete list of stations to be discontinued is available at: real-time water data page or map. Fact Sheets describe maintenance costs and USGS streamgage operation (1,2,3,4).
