Feb 12, 2019 - Introducing The Next Generation of USGS Water Data for the Nation

The USGS is pleased to announce the beginning of new water-data station pages on waterdata.usgs.gov, our flagship Water Data for the Nation.  Real-time water data are shown on these pages, and they can be found from existing pages:

But the existing pages you have come to rely upon will not be altered or decommissioned for some time, not until we are certain we’ve conserved all essential functionality.

Here is an example new page.  This is only the beginning.  We will announce major new developments through on this news area periodically.  But more frequently we will be communicating at https://waterdata.usgs.gov/blog/.  

We hope you will try these new pages out and offer feedback.  We will listen. We believe these new pages hold much promise.  These pages are being developed with the latest web technology and usability techniques.  

USGS is looking to our future, but holding close our long tradition of water-data presentation on the web.  We were there at the start of the Web and we are here again, building the 21st century’s water data for a great Nation.
