  • Water Resources Mission

  • To provide reliable, impartial, timely information that is needed to understand the Nation’s water resources.


U s geological survey

USGSStreamgaging Network

  • One of the primary responsibilities of the U.S. Geological Survey is the collection and analysis of hydrologic data.


U s geological survey

Louisiana HydroWatch

  • Over 225 near-real time stations equipped with GOES radio.

  • HydroWatch operation Centers in Baton Rouge and Ruston.

Typically the data is collected in 15

minute, 30

-

minute,

or one hour intervals, but can be collected on any

interval required.

The data is transmitted thru the GOES satellite to our

office on 1

-

hr or 4

-

hr intervals, depending on the baud

rate of the transmitter.

The data may be transmitted on a random interval

once certain threshold limits are reached.
