Updated September 21, 2018 - USGS water-resources monitoring will continue with partner funds and USGS Cooperative Matching Funds at the following site: USGS water-resources monitoring will be discontinued at the following sites effective October 1, 2018:
  • 06024540 Big Hole R bel Mudd Cr nr Wisdom, MT (seasonal water temperature)
  • 06308400 Pumpkin Cr nr Miles City, MT (annual streamflow, water temperature, and sampling)
USGS monitoring activities at these sites were funded by partner agencies. Lack of partner funding for these sites resulted in discontinuation of all streamgaging activities.
