The USGS Alabama Water Science Center provides current real time data on streamflow, ground water, water quality, precipitation, and lakes and reservoirs from sites throughout Alabama. The center also has numerous publications, data sheets, projects, and scientific reports on a range of hydrological topics. The USGS operates the most extensive satellite network of stream-gaging stations in the state, many of which form the backbone of flood-warning systems. The USGS provides current ("real-time") stream stage and streamflow, water-quality, and ground-water levels for over 200 sites in Alabama.
Developed from a partnership between the Gulf of Mexico Alliance, the Mississippi-Alabama Sea Grant Consortium, Louisiana Sea Grant, Texas Sea Grant, Florida Sea Grant, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s Coastal Storms Program and the Gulf of Mexico Program, the Coastal Resilience Index was designed to help every coastal community become more resilient to the impacts of climate change, such as sea level rise, storm surge and flooding.

Department of the Interior(DOI): Gulf Coast Plains and Ozarks Landscape Conservation Cooperative(LCC)
The Gulf Coast Plains and Ozarks Landscape Conservation Cooperative (GCPO LCC) is one of 21 LCCs established by Secretarial Order No. 3289, which focus on on-the-ground strategic conservation efforts at the landscape level. LCCs are management-science partnerships that inform integrated resource-management actions addressing climate change and other stressors within and across landscapes, linking science and conservation delivery.
