Water Resources of Texas
Water information is gathered by the USGS Texas Water Science Center to minimize the loss of life and property from natural disasters, to contribute to the conservation and sound economic and physical development of the Nation's natural resources, and to enhance the quality of life by monitoring water, biological, energy, and mineral resources.
The USGS provides real-time stream stage and stream flow, water quality, and groundwater levels for more than 650 sites in Texas, including these newly installed continuously monitored sites.
View over 750 USGS real-time stream, lake, reservoir, precipitation, and groundwater stations in context with current weather and hazard conditions. Two fully-autonomous Twitter feeds distribute water level and precipitation data during flooding or severe rainfall: @USGS_TexasFlood and @USGS_TexasRain.
Texas Water Dashboard is a web mapping application that presents U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) real-time stream, lake, reservoir, precipitation, and well data in Texas in context with current weather and hazard conditions. Two fully-autonomous Twitter feeds distribute water level and precipitation data during flooding or severe rainfall: @USGS_TexasFlood and @USGS_TexasRain.
The application is best viewed in Chrome, FireFox, or Internet Explorer 9 and above.

Assessing Groundwater Over Time in Gaines, Terry and Yoakum Counties, Texas
A new report about how groundwater quality and quantity has changed in and around Gaines, Terry and Yoakum counties, Texas is now available from the U.S. Geological Survey. This report is part of a multi-phase study that is being done in cooperation with Llano Estacado Underground Water Conservation District, Sandy Land Underground Water District and South Plains Underground Water Conservation District.
Declining groundwater levels have raised concerns about the amount of water available in the study area and the potential for water-quality changes. This report will help water managers make informed decisions about this finite resource.
