The WaterNow mapper lets you find different gauge sites. The black dots represent surface water sites.

 

The U.S. Geological Survey’s WaterNow service can send users up-to-date water information via text or e-mail.

Users can visit the service’s mapper and find a gauge located in their area. From there, they send that gauge’s site number to the service by text or e-mail and the service responds with up-to-date data within minutes.

    I looked for information on water currents and did not find any! However I found plenty of current water information. Current, as in timely. You may want to re-phrase your article. Like what you are doing – keep up the good work.

    They can do this, but have to lay off janitors at the Smithsonian? Go figure!
