Mission of the USGS Washington Water Science Center

We are the Federal water-science agency whose mission is to COLLECT, ANALYZE, and DISSEMINATE the impartial hydrologic data and information needed to wisely manage water resources for the people of the United States and the State of Washington.

We operate local and statewide networks to COLLECT quality-assured data that define natural and human-induced hydrologic conditions.

We ANALYZE hydrologic processes through investigations and research to increase understanding of important water-resources issues and to promote informed decision making.

We maintain real-time and historical databases and publish peer-reviewed interpretive and data reports to DISSEMINATE unbiased hydrologic information.

To assure that our work is relevant and useful, we form partnerships and cooperate with local, State, and Federal agencies; Native American governments; and other public organizations.
