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:
