|| NOTICE (05/01/2013) -- Funding dropped
for USGS monitoring network in the five boroughs of New York
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).
