Data Center Description
The USGS Colorado Water Science Center is the source for water-resource information collected and interpreted by the U.S. Geological Survey in Colorado. The U.S. Geological Survey currently operates over 200 data collection sites in Colorado for acquiring information on surface-water, groundwater, water-quality, and precipitation. Many of the sites are equipped with satellite telemetry, which provides real-time data via GOES satellites and downlinks, which enables the posting of data to the Web for public dissemination.
