Florida Stream and River Levels
The United States Geological Survey has a number of stream gages located throughout Florida. These estimate stream levels, discharges and record them over time. This data is published on the web and many stations allow users to plot custom graphs. Get updated Florida river and stream levels from USGS here.
Florida Stream and River Level Alerts
The United States Geological Survey has a system that will send you an email message when flood levels are reached on any steam with USGS gaging equipment that you have selected. Sign up here to recieve Florida stream and river level alerts.
Florida Water Publications
The United States Geological Survey has a number of publications related to water use and water resources in Florida. View the water resource publications for Florida here.
Florida Drought Map
The United States Geological Survey publishes updated drought maps on their website. There you can view a map that shows where below normal 7-day average stream flow conditions were recently recorded. The maps are updated daily. Get a current Florida drought map here.
Florida Precipitation Map
The National Atlas Project has precipitation maps for Florida and other states that you can view online or print for personal use. These maps show the average annual precipitation levels mapped across the state. View and print an Florida precipitation map here. Precipitation maps prepared by the PRISM Climate Group at Oregon State University and the United States Geological Survey.
Florida Elevation Map
The topography of an area determines the direction of stream flow and often is a primary influence on the geographic distribution of precipitation. View a detailed Florida elevation map.
