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.

Texas Water Dashboard

Texas Water Dashboard

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.

Texas Gulf Coast Groundwater and Land Subsidence: Forty Years of Research in the Houston-Galveston Region

Split screen view of regional groundwater-level altitude contours for the Chicot aquifer, 2016 and 1977, Houston-Galveston region, Texas.

The Texas Gulf Coast Groundwater and Land Subsidence Program web application illustrates how groundwater, sediment compaction and land-elevation change are related in the Houston-Galveston region in Texas.

The region represents one of the largest areas of land-surface elevation change, or subsidence, in the United States. Most of the land subsidence in this region has occurred as a direct result of groundwater withdrawals for municipal supply, commercial and industrial use and irrigation. The viewer shows how water levels have changed over time and how groundwater demands have affected land subsidence in the region with more than 40 years of groundwater and compaction observations.
