This is Reclamation’s new hydrologic database access portal. These new tools are designed to replace the Data Retrieval apps below, as they begin to reach the end of their functional lifespans. We encourage everyone to take a look at our new and improved access portal and begin plans to transition to this improved data delivery source.

Gage Data (flow, flow volume & side inflows.)
San Juan Chama Accounting Data (account storage and flows.)
