The USGS has a long history of providing the data behind the science in USGS publications, producing reproducible science. Since October 2016, USGS also has required that the USGS data on which any USGS publication is based be made available online, as part of the USGS Public Access Plan. These data are available for download by resource managers, policy makers, students, researchers, and any other member of the public. Example USGS data resources about groundwater that you can download and use include:

Animation of Groundwater Watch Active Water Level Network

The USGS Active Groundwater Level Network includes about 20,000 wells that have been measured by the USGS or USGS cooperators at least once within the past 13 months. The animation shows a daily snapshot of water-level statistics in the network for December 2019. Credit: USGS. The image is in the public domain.

Field Photo

Groundwater science doesn't take a winter vacation! In these photos, USGS hdyrologic technicians Jeffrey Kinsey and Jeremiah Pomerleau are snowshoeing to a USGS groundwater monitoring sites in Maine. USGS scientists visit USGS groundwater observation wells year-round to measure water levels and maintain equipment. You can view or download USGS groundwater-level data from the USGS National Water Information System (NWIS) web site. These monitoring wells (Eustis and Middle Dam) are managed by the USGS New England Water Science Center.
