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 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.
