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.
