Is the Water Warm Enough for a Dip?

Continuous real-time information on water quality is a vital asset that helps safeguard lives and property and ensures adequate water resources for a healthy economy. As the weather heats up, swimming, boating and fishing become the ideal way to spend a weekend. Find out if the water is warm enough for your favorite recreational activities by checking out real-time water quality information through the USGS WaterQualityWatch Web site at http://water.usgs.gov/waterwatch/wqwatch/. Real-time water quality measurements are available at more than 1,300 sites across the nation. Measurements include streamflow, water temperature, pH levels, dissolved oxygen, turbidity and specific conductance. For more information, contact Jennifer LaVista at 703-648-4432 or jlavista@usgs.gov.

Although the earliest banding studies focused on migration, information from banded birds is now used to study bird behavior and ecology; monitor populations and restored endangered species; assess the effects of environmental disturbances; set hunting regulations; educate people about the environment; and address concerns about human safety and health. For example, banding studies are helping researchers track diseases suc
