Introduction

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. Site-level and time-series level revisions are also now available.

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.
