Surface-Water Information and Data

Current streamflow conditions map

The U.S. Geological Survey operates and maintains approximately 7,300 streamgages nationwide, about 170 real-time stream flow gages here in New Jersey, which provide long-term, accurate, and unbiased information that meets the needs of many diverse users. The USGS collects the streamflow data needed by Federal, State, and local agencies for planning and operating water-resources projects and regulatory programs.

The links below allow you to find information and data about New Jersey's surface-water resources. The map to the left shows current streamflow conditions in New Jersey; click the map to go to a full size version from USGS WaterWatch.
