Is there a way to get alerts about streamflow conditions?
Yes! The USGS offers two services:
WaterAlert - automated emails or text messages are sent to you whenever certain parameters (that you define) are exceeded at one of our gaging stations.
WaterNow - Send an email or text message to WaterNow@usgs.gov containing the USGS Site Number of the gage you want to query (optionally add parameter codes to customize your query). You will receive an automated response within a few minutes.
