Water Levels

Water levels in the Dan River Basin

The United States Geological Survey (USGS) has a very extensive network of streamgages. These gages are placed in the nation's rivers for invaluable information to many people including planners, recreational use, farmers, and the general public. To learn more about stream gages and your watershed follow the importance of streamgages and Streamgages-Measuring the pulse of our Nation's Rivers links.

These USGS gages are a valuable resource for making your outing to the Dan River Basin safe and enjoyable.
