Alaskan Hydrologic Data, U.S. Geological Survey's (USGS) National Water Information System (NWIS)

Monitoring occurs over several networks: The USGS Alaska Science Center Water Resources Office continuously monitors surface water, groundwater, and water quality parameters across the state. Monitoring sites are operated in cooperation with various local, State, or Federal agencies. Streambed Scour The USGS Alaska Science Center is researching streambed scour at bridges through scour monitoring, hydrodynamic modeling, and data collection during high flows. Surface Water Alaska provides real-time water-stage, streamflow and precipitation data at 152 sites across the state. Groundwater Fourteen groundwater wells are monitored by the USGS in Alaska. These wells record data on hourly intervals. Flood Watch The "Flood and high flow" map shows the location of streamgages where the water level is currently at or above flood stage. Water Quality Water-quality conditions are continuously monitored by the USGS at 43 sites across the state of Alaska
