What We Do

Monitoring site on a Deadman's Run tributary in Taylor Park.
  • We operate local and statewide networks to collect high-quality data that define natural and human-induced hydrologic conditions.
  • We analyze hydrologic processes through investigations and research to increase understanding of important water-resource issues and to promote informed decision making.
  • We maintain real-time and historical data bases and publish peer-reviewed interpretive and data reports to disseminate unbiased hydrologic information.

To assure that our work is relevant and useful, we form partnerships with Federal, State, and local agencies, and other public organizations.

Funding for the Nebraska Water Science Center comes from a variety of sources, including direct Federal appropriations, other Federal agencies, and a cooperative program that allows the Nebraska Water Science Center to partially match funding with state and local agencies.
