From warning the public of impending floods to settling legal arguments over water rights, the measurement of streamflow ("streamgaging") plays a vital role in our society.

The U.S. Geological Survey's (USGS) streamgaging program provides such information to a wide variety of users interested in human safety, recreation, water quality, habitat, industry, agriculture, and other topics.

Details of the book
Assessing the National Streamflow Information Program

Knowledge of the flow of water in the nation's streams and rivers plays a vital role in flood protection, water supply, pollution control, and environment management. The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) has proposed the creation of a National Streamflow Information Program (NSIP) to satisfy streamflow information needs. In addition streamgaging, the USGS envisions four components of NSIP: data collection during floods and droughts, regional and national assessments of streamflow characteristics, enhanced information delivery, and methods development and research.
