National Water and Climate Center

This branch of the National Resource Conservation Service (NRCS) leads the development and transfer of water and climate information and technology which support natural resources conservation. The NWCC website contains various types of data such as precipitation maps, climate data, water supply forecasts, drought reports, stream flow data, soil types and temperature, and snow pack data. Some of the data is in the form of interactive maps or graphs that can be modified by the user. The Water Quality and Quantity Services section contains information, tools and policies regarding pest management, erosion control, wetlands, nutrient management, irrigation, animal waste management and hydraulics. There are also fact sheets on a range of topics such as wildfire, conservation buffers and snow surveys.
