The Idaho Water Science Center is one of 48 nationwide USGS water science centers. Our mission is to provide reliable, impartial scientific information to our local, state, tribal, and federal partners so they can efficiently manage the water resources within their jurisdictions. Our data and research also help protect the citizens of Idaho against floods and other natural disasters. Our science is focused in four basic areas:
◦Surface water resources including rivers, lakes, and reservoirs
◦Groundwater resources, both cold water and geothermal
◦Water use and availability
We have offices located in Idaho Falls, Post Falls and Boise.
