Main Features Include: + USGS / AHPS River Levels & Flows + Gauge Flood Status Push Notifications + Weather Prediction Center Charts Interactive USGS / AHPS Gauge Map The USGS maintains a national network of stream gauges that provide hydrological observations. In addition, AHPS collects real-time water level information from other federal, state, and local stream gauge networks. USGS / AHPS Hydrological Data Includes: + Water Level & Flow Observations + Gauge Levels, Flows & Volume Forecast + Gauge History & Statistics + Flood Status Push Notifications Weather Prediction Center Charts + Significant River Flood Outlook + Quantitative Precipitation Forecasts + Excessive Rainfall Outlook + U.S Hazards Outlook + Risk of Heavy Precipitation Enjoy!
River levels are not updated regularly or inaccurate for the Oswego River. I also wish that you could interact with the graph as well as change the timeline to account for more days, and have averages for time of year for Rivers. App could use much improvements and is definitely not worth $2.99.
Payed for it and there’s not even an option to add usgs river sites that I know are there. You can google search them and find them but they are not available to add on the app
You’re paying for the gauges to be worse than if you searched them online. Arguably the biggest waste of money in my life.
Wish it had USGS flow charts instead of noaa charts (or at least the option to chose between them). NOAA charts don’t scale the y axis (flow in cfs) to the current levels so it’s hard to visually see if a river is rising or dropping. Some rivers show flow charts but most show gauge height instead which is far less useful in my opinion. River notification feature is lacking, it would be nice if you could set a notification when a river enters a particular flow range. Overall good interface but it lacks the features that are actually useful
I know it's a work in progress and am pretty happy so far. My only suggestion is making it more obvious where to change the units from kcfs to cfs. I had a hard time finding it and almost gave up.
I was pleasantly surprised by this simple yet robust app. Very clean and easy to use. Easily allows me to monitor River levels and send myself push notifications regarding different flood stages. Smart design and very responsive developer who emailed me back within minutes of asking a question. Ad free and bug free. Get this one.
This app is great and much easier than navigating through the USGS website (even though the new website is pretty great). However this app could be just as great if not better if it had the mean and median flows listed on the AHPS graphs..
Every kayaker should have this app. If you often find yourself checking the levels and water temps at your favorite gauges, this app puts the info (including flow predictions) at your fingertips. The developers are also amazingly responsive.
Not only do you get current river flow but now river temperature has been added to the bottom of the page which is very helpful to fishermen.
