Support for USGS Water Data & Science Programs
We are helping to lead a federal advisory committee effort to provide USGS and the Interior Dept with recommendations to assure strong data and science programs in a shrinking budget environment. This is a complex challenge, and we encourage your participation (contact Peter Evans).
We have been successful in gathering more than 50 organizations’ endorsement of this year’s letters to Congress urging their support for the USGS streamgage programs (NSIP & CWP), and we welcome your using them in your newsletters and contacting your Congressional delegation.
