The U.S. Geological Survey National Water Dashboard supplies critical information to decision makers, emergency managers, and the public during extreme hydrologic events (such as droughts and floods) and during normal hydrologic conditions. It informs decision making that can help protect lives and property before and during extreme hydrologic events. The National Water Dashboard draws upon the extensive site-specific hydrologic data housed in the U.S. Geological Survey National Water Information System database ( and also links to the U.S. Geological Survey WaterAlert system, which provides users with instant and customized updates about water conditions. Overall, the National Water Dashboard is part of the U.S. Geological Survey's effort to respond to 21st century science needs.
