Water Resources of Nebraska
Welcome to the USGS Web page for the Nebraska Water Science Center (NEWSC). Here you'll find information on Nebraska's rivers and streams, groundwater, water quality, and many other topics. The USGS operates the most extensive satellite network of stream-gaging stations in the state, many of which form the backbone of flood-warning systems.
USGS water-information system goes mobile
The U.S. Geological Survey has released a beta mobile version of the USGS National Water Information System (NWIS). The new USGS Mobile Water Data site (http://m.waterdata.usgs.gov) is a site designed for mobile users. It highlights USGS current conditions water data from the USGS NWIS. It can be used to monitor conditions at a favorite river or stream or any other available USGS current-conditions water data.
There is nothing to install. Simply use any browser to go to http://m.waterdata.usgs.gov. While the site was designed for smartphones, it may work fine on tablet computers, most other mobile devices and desktop computers. The site may not work on older devices or older browsers. The site is not designed for cell phones with tiny screens, phones that are text-oriented or that are not "smart." In general, you must be able to install an app on your mobile device to use the site acceptably. You may notice quirks and issues with older mobile devices or the latest mobile devices.
Please visit our roll-out Web page for a tutorial and additional information on the new mobile interface. This site is new so the USGS expects some gliches. Hence, a link to report recurring issues has been provided. Since the content on the site is for current conditions only, please visit the full USGS Water Data for the Nation (http://waterdata.usgs.gov/nwis/) for additional water data.
