The new “Water On-the-Go” mobile app gives the public easy access to current conditions in streams across Texas. This product was developed by the U.S. Geological Survey to help raise water awareness during both floods and normal conditions.
The new, mobile-friendly website/app allows users to quickly locate USGS gages in Texas that measure streamflow, stream height, rainfall or lake levels so that users can get up-to-date information on water conditions near where they are located. The app provides critical data during flood events and can also be used by recreationalists to help determine the best places or times to go boating, fishing or hiking.
The app offers three ways to view streamflow or other data, including, using your phone’s GPS system, clicking on an area of interest, or searching for a physical location. Results show what is happening in streams and lakes near you and how quickly conditions are changing around you.
Texans can go to https://txpub.usgs.gov/water-onthego/ and bookmark the link today.
