Surface Water Data Program
Contact: Cory Angeroth
Funding Organization: U.S. Geological Survey
Subject: surface water, water resources, forecasting
Data Type: Water Quality
Abstract: The objectives of this project are two-fold. One aspect of this study is the collection of surface-water data sufficient to satisfy needs for current-purpose uses such as (1) assessment of water resources, (2) operation of reservoirs or industries, (3) forecasting, (4) pollution controls and disposal of wastes, (5) discharge data to accompany water-quality measurements, (6) compact and legal requirements, and (7) research or special studies. This project is also conducted to collect data necessary for analytical studies to define for any location the statistical properties of, and trends in, the occurrence of water in streams, lakes, estuaries, etc., for use in planning and design.
