  • January 22, 2018 - USGS Water Data availability during lapse in Federal funding

    Due to a lapse in Federal funding, the U.S. Geological Survey must suspend those parts of its data collection and distribution processes requiring human intervention. However, automated reporting and serving of telemetered data will continue.

    Users may note some degradation in the quality and completeness of real-time streamflow, groundwater and water-quality data from some reporting stations due to the suspension of field calibrations and adjustments, especially as high flows occur, aquatic vegetation becomes dominant, or ice forms in high altitude streams. The USGS will continue to monitor some performance aspects of its network using a skeleton workforce.

Time-series data statistics on Water Data for the Nation vs. USGS publications
The statistics generated on this web site may not match values published by the USGS in various interpretive or data reports for a number of reasons. In general these relate to the fact that the statistics provided on Water Data for the Nation are generated from the daily values upon request. As such, it is not possible to exactly mirror the decisions made by the authors of USGS publications. Some of the most common reasons for differences between statistical values are as follows.

  1. The period of record is different between the statistics from Water Data for the Nation and the published statistics.
  2. The year used may be different
  3. The treatment of partial record may be different
  4. The precision may be different
  5. The statistics themselves are different
  6. The published statistics may combine continuous time-series and discrete data
