USGS Massachusetts Water Science Center
The USGS Massachusetts Water Science Center monitors and analyzes surface-water, groundwater, water-quality and biological parameters throughout the state, and provides current real time data on ground water, streamflow, precipitation, and water quality from sites throughout Massachusetts. Data collection and interpretive studies are done in cooperation with various local, State, or Federal agencies. The center provides maps of current conditions of streamflow, drought, and flooding, as well as a number of publications, reports, and professional papers covering a complete range of hydrological topics.
The Massachusetts Water Science Center conducts projects that involve the collection, monitoring, management and analysis of data on hydrologic and biologic resource conditions. These projects address a wide variety of water-resources issues, including water supply, groundwater contamination, nutrient loading in streams, ecological influences, effects of land use on water quality, and basic hydrologic and biologic data collection. Project work is accomplished with funding by State, county, municipal and Federal cooperators with water-resources responsibilities.
USGS Water Science Centers are located in each state, producing data for the 50 states, U.S. territories, and the District of Columbia.
