Water-Supply Papers

Many USGS reports on water resources are now being served online. Most publications located at this site and other USGS sites can be located by subject, author, date, USGS series or publication series number by using the reports and thematic maps electronic Publications Warehouse. The Publications Warehouse currently contains the most extensive collection of online Water Supply Papers, and will eventually be taking the place of this page.
