The USGS, the source for RiverBoss river data, will be making changes in how it delivers information to consumers and applications. These changes will likely not effect RiverBoss, but we will continue to monitor for service issues.

From the USGS: 

Changes are coming this summer to USGS water data. For most users, the changes will be minor or unnoticeable. Advanced users and data analysts should read on to understand how changes to some data fields and calculations could affect their work. Users who write or maintain software that uses these water data should read on.

These changes result from improvements to the underlying National Water Information System software used to collect, validate, quality-assure and store USGS water data. We have worked hard to minimize end-user impact, but there is some impact.

Most of these changes will we be implemented state-by-state over a 7 month period starting in late summer 2016.

Again, RiverBoss users should not be impacted by this update, but let us know if you see any issues at
