USGS Threatened and Endangered Water-Quality Stations
The following stations have been or are about to be discontinued due to the lack of funding. If you have questions about specific stations,
please contact the individual identified for each State. If you have questions about the US Geological Survey Water-Quality Program in general please contact Donna Myers (703-648-5012; firstname.lastname@example.org).
0 Threatened stations,
Funding unlikely. Station maybe discontinued
8 Endangered stations,
Funding NOT available. Station will be discontinued
140 Recently-discontinued stations
148 Total Water-Quality Stations with Funding Issues Due to Funding Shortfall
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.
