Click to hide state-specific text

During the week of February 6, 2017, the USGS Minnesota Water Science Center will transition to new data-management software. While you may not noticed this transition, some sites may have problems or delays in being updated. We will be actively monitoring these conditions and will resolving them as quickly as possible.

(126,631 sites)

Information for each site in the USGS data base can be retrieved for viewing and for download and import into other software, including GIS software. Includes links to all water data available for individual sites.


The Site Inventory System contains and provides access to inventory information about sites at stream reaches, wells, test holes, springs, tunnels, drains, lakes, reservoirs, ponds, excavations, and water-use facilities.

About 300 components make up the descriptive elements of the site inventory. The retrieval program can be used for retrieving information about sites in summary lists, in detailed tables, or a file suitable for input to other programs.
