Ohio Stream and River Levels
The United States Geological Survey has a number of stream gages located throughout Ohio. 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 Ohio river and stream levels from USGS here.
Ohio 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 Ohio stream and river level alerts.
Ohio Water Publications
The United States Geological Survey has a number of publications related to water use and water resources in Ohio. View the water resource publications for Ohio here.
Ohio 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 Ohio drought map here.
Ohio Precipitation Map
The National Atlas Project has precipitation maps for Ohio 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 Ohio precipitation map here. Precipitation maps prepared by the PRISM Climate Group at Oregon State University and the United States Geological Survey.
Ohio 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 Ohio elevation map.
