Coupled Real-time Streambank Piezometer and Streamflow Gaging Station

Project Objective:
  • Demonstrate the feasibility and utility of including groundwater level and temperature data from shallow streambank piezometers with existing suites of real-time data collected and transmitted at active streamflow gaging stations. 

Project Benefits:
  • Demonstrate the usefulness of real-time groundwater data in a dynamic environment. Data could be used to assist water managers making day-to-day decisions about water use (the impact of nearby groundwater and surface-water withdrawals on streamflow, water depth, and (or) water temperature for example) in a watershed.
  • Provide personnel operating streamflow gaging stations with another tool for interpreting streamflow gaging station records when data must be interpolated, such as streamflow under ice cover. 
  • Provide a long-term groundwater/surface-water data set for future methods development and analysis of groundwater/surface-water interaction.

Real-time streambank piezometer and gaging station pairs are being studied in different hydrologic and geologic settings across the United States.
