Streamflows in the Northeastern U.S. continue to decline, despite some scattered showers in the region, according to hydrologists at the U.S. Geological Survey, an agency of the Department of the Interior.

The following flows on two major rivers in the Northeast were measured at USGS monitoring stations. All numbers are expressed in millions of gallons per day.
