Water Resources of Texas
The USGS Texas Water Science Center gathers water information 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 updated Texas Water Dashboard shows real-time water data collected at USGS observation stations in context with weather-related data from other public sources.
- Added real-time Water Quality data
- New 'rate of change' option for streams shows rising and falling conditions
- River Report gives a state-wide summary of water conditions
- New layout for map controls
- Improved access for mobile devices
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.
