Data Center Data Data


Data sites and sources, both the departmentís and those of other agencies, that can be followed to review available water data on a variety of subjects in a variety of formats and, in some cases, to manipulate and download the data.

Please note that many of these data sources are quite large and include a variety of analytical applications and GIS mapping tools that may not function well over a standard modem connection. Some sites, however, include reports and other information that can be downloaded using a standard modem.

Note:  The Department of Environmental Protection is not liable for the use of any data obtained through this site or for any conclusions drawn by other parties based on this data.
