US Geological Survey: California Water Science Center

The USGS works with partners to monitor, assess, conduct targeted research, and deliver information on a wide range of water resources and conditions including streamflow, groundwater, water quality, and water use and availability.  Nationwide, there are 27 Water Science Centers plus 1 integrated Science Center as of September 2019 that contribute valuable water science to all 50 States.

The USGS California Water Science Center collects basic hydrologic data for processing, analysis, dissemination, and archiving; provides data and science for water management decisions; provides data, models, and science to support groundwater management; assesses the quality of groundwater resources; conducts science about the effects of oil and gas production on groundwater; and continually develops tools and technical capabilities to meet ever-changing demands.
