Summary

The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) and the West Virginia Water Gaging Council have proposed an expansion to the existing West Virginia streamgage network. As of December 18, 2018, the USGS operates a network of 149 real-time streamgages in West Virginia. This geospatial dataset provides the approximate locations of 39 proposed streamgages. These streamgages include 31 presently operated by the West Virginia Division of Homeland Security and Emergency Management and 8 new streamgages. These streamgages may be relocated depending on access and stream conditions, and data users who need precise locations of these streamgages may contact the USGS office in Charleston, West Virginia.

Purpose

The 39 additional sites are proposed to enhance the current West Virginia streamgaging network by providing information necessary for improved flood predictions, warning response times, and mapping; improved water-resources management and water-quality monitoring; better design of transportation structures; and increased accessibility of publicly available real-time streamgage data.
