Launch Hydro Mapper


The Walker Basin Hydro Mapper provides a basin-wide perspective of real-time streamflow and stage as well as lake and reservoir storage capacity for the Walker River Basin in Nevada and California. This tool was developed to create a common operating picture for water users in the Walker Basin and to help monitor changes to instream flows associated with the Walker Basin Restoration Program.

The interactive map shows data from USGS observation stations and National Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) Snotel stations in conjunction with weather conditions. Stage and capacity data along with descriptive information is provided. Total dissolved solids data are shown in an interactive graph.
