Welcome to the new website for the USGS Alabama Water Science Center!
Welcome to the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) Web page for the water resources of Alabama; this is your direct link to all kinds of water-resource information. Here you'll find information on Alabama's rivers and streams. You'll also find information about ground water, water quality, and many other topics. The USGS operates the most extensive satellite network of stream-gaging stations in the state, many of which form the backbone of flood-warning systems.

Historical Preservation of Toomer's Oaks in Auburn, AL
The Alabama Water Science Center and Dr. Luke Marzen, Professor of Geography at Auburn University utilized a tripod-mounted laser scanner to capture every dimension of the trees. The tripod-mounted laser scanner also known as terrestrial light detection and ranging (T-LiDAR) quickly scans and outputs XYZ geospatial data to produce highly accurate 3 dimensional (3D) point cloud of the surveyed scene.
