    Water Resources of New York

    Welcome to the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) Web page for the water resources of New York; this is your direct link to all kinds of water-resource information. Here you'll find information on New York's rivers, lakes, and estuaries. You'll also find information about ground water, water quality, and many other topics. The USGS operates the most extensive satellite network of stream- and tide-gaging stations in the state, many of which form the backbone of flood-warning systems.

    The USGS provides current ("real-time") stream stage and surface-water, water-quality, and ground-water levels for over 300 sites in New York.
