This new interactive map uniquely represents how and where RAIN monitors the rivers from which most of the region’s drinking water is taken. It allows you to see the water data collected, and helps inform you of general water quality data you need to know about the water resources used by public drinking water systems.
Current river data displayed for pH, conductivity, temperature and other parameters is collected from various sites along the Allegheny, Monongahela, Ohio, Youghiogheny, Shenango, and Beaver rivers. The Current River Data displayed here is provided to make it easier for you to get current river information in near real-time from one central location. As such, please be aware that the data presented on this public interactive map for the RAIN sites is provisional, and is being supplied as it is collected for educational use.
In addition, the map also provides overlay tools (Watersheds, Rivers, USGS sites, etc) that help put into context the data provided at each of the RAIN monitoring locations. Many of the overlays provide additional links to pertinent sites maintained by the USEPA and/or USGS, so you can easily drill down to associated data for a given geographical locale.
Note: More-detailed layers may take approximately a half minute to load into your browser depending on your computer and network, browser type and version, and internet connection speed (e.g. Minor Basins).
