The primary reason for these actions is the lack of funding to support the continued operation of the stations. Funds for these stations are from the U.S. Geological Survey and other Federal, State, Tribal, and local agencies. For those stations that have already been discontinued, extensive efforts were made to find another funding source; however, when no funding was made available the stations had to be discontinued. For those stations at risk for discontinuation, the current funding source has indicated that it can no longer fund the station. Efforts are currently underway to identify another funding source for the operation of these stations; however, if no funding is identified, then these stations will have to be discontinued also.
