About the Massachusetts Office

The New England Water Science Center is one of many Water Science Centers in the Water Resources Discipline of the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS). The Water Science Center's mission is to collect, analyze and disseminate reliable scientific information to describe and understand the Earth; minimize loss of life and property from natural hazards; and manage water resources for the people of the United States and the State of Massachusetts.

The MA Office has a long history of excellence in the collection, analysis, and interpretation of hydrologic and related data. By providing relevant water data and interpretation when and where it is needed, the MA Office has successfully helped water managers at the national, state and local level to achieve their management goals in addressing the critical water issues of Massachusetts.
