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.
NOTICE: Due to the lapse in appropriations, our technicians are prohibited from conducting work as Federal employees, including returning phone calls, emails, and field work/repairs until further notice. If you urgently need to speak with someone at the USGS regarding emergencies or matters of protecting life and property, call (703) 648-7411 or (703) 648-7412. For more information on the shutdown, please visit the Department of the Interior website at www.doi.gov.
Raw stage data will still be available for select COE Stations at the following link: US Army Corps - RiverGages.com; and for select NWS Stations at the following link: National Weather Service - River Observations; in case of an emergency please call our office at (608) 828-9901.
