Surface-Water Information and Data
The U.S. Geological Survey operates and maintains approximately 7,300 streamgages nationwide, about 140 here in Mississippi, which provide long-term, accurate, and unbiased information that meets the needs of many diverse users. The USGS collects the streamflow data needed by Federal, State, and local agencies for planning and operating water-resources projects and regulatory programs.
The links below allow you to find information and data about Mississippi's surface-water resources. The map to the left shows current streamflow conditions in Mississippi; click the map to go to a full size version from USGS WaterWatch.
Informative Tools & Links
National Water Information System: Mapper
The new NWIS Mapper provides an interactive map interface to all USGS water data (historical and current). (Note: To access data, zoom in on the map to level 11 or greater to make the individual sites clickable.)
Instantaneous Data Archive (IDA)
The Instantaneous Data Archive makes available as much intra-day streamflow data and historical instantaneous data continuous (measurements from every 5 to every 60 minutes), as possible, often several years' worth of data.
USGS StreaMail is a system for accessing real-time river stage and streamflow from hand-held wireless devices, such as cell phones
and Blackberries. All you have to do is send an email or text message to "firstname.lastname@example.org" and use a USGS station number in the
"Subject" line. In a few minutes you'll get back an email/text message with the most recent stage and streamflow.
Now you can receive instant, customized updates about water conditions by subscribing to WaterAlert, a new service from
the U.S. Geological Survey. WaterAlert allows users to receive updates about river flows, groundwater levels, water temperatures,
rainfall, and water quality at more than 9,500 sites where USGS collects real-time water information. The Mississippi Water Science
Center collects real-time water information at more than 130 sites throughout Mississippi and makes that data available to the public
