California Data Exchange Center

A data set of flows and reservoir storage levels from gauges on the Eel River.

The California Data Exchange Center (CDEC) installs, maintains, and operates an extensive hydrologic data collection network including automatic snow reporting gages for the Cooperative Snow Surveys Program and precipitation and river stage sensors for flood forecasting.


California Salmon Snapshots

The Nature Conservancy’s extensive website for California Salmon.

The Nature Conservancy’s California Salmon Snapshots is a collaborative information-sharing effort, critical to the on-going recovery of the state’s salmon species. For the first time ever, population data from the California Department of Fish & Wildlife and others — are compiled to show the number of salmon in our coastal California watersheds. This is the most comprehensive salmon information in California, and these snapshots will help guide state-wide salmon recovery to the places where we can have the greatest impact.

California Water Atlas

An interactive map of water rights held in California.

A water right is a granted permission to withdraw water from a river, stream, or ground water source for a “reasonable” and “beneficial” use.
Water rights vary from very small domestic use water rights to very large state and federal projects to provide water for irrigation districts, hydropower, and cities.

Department of the Interior’s Interactive Stream Map.

Streamer is a new way to visualize and understand water flow across America. With Streamer you can explore our Nation’s major streams by tracing upstream to their source or downstream to where they empty. In addition to making maps, Streamer creates reports about your stream traces and the places they pass through.


United States Geological Survey: National Water Information System

The above link directs to a data set for stage and stream flow of seven sites on the Eel River.

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