In 1889, the U.S. Geological Survey established its first gaging station in Nevada and providing to the public data about Nevada's water resources. Today, this systematic collection and dissemination of hydrologic data is made possible with the cooperation from Federal, Tribal, State, and local agencies. A list of our current cooperators is available online.

These pages provide access to water-resources data collected at approximately 20,000 sites in Nevada. Online access to this data is organized around the categories listed to the left.

The USGS investigates the occurrence, quantity, quality, distribution, and movement of surface and underground waters and disseminates the data to the public; Tribal, State and local governments; public and private utilities; and other Federal agencies involved with managing Nevada's water resources.
