USBR Hydromet System


The Bureau of Reclamation operates a network of automated hydrologic and meteorologic monitoring stations located throughout the Pacific Northwest. This network and its associated communications and computer systems are collectively called the Hydromet. Remote data collection platforms transmit water and environmental data via satellite to provide cost-effective, near-real-time water management capability. Other information, as available, is integrated with Hydromet data to provide timely water supply status for river and reservoir operations.
