USGS Current Water Data for Michigan

Michigan water levels and streamflow conditions have reached record highs recently and are projected to continue to increase as time goes on. The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) has provided several interactive graphics related changes in streamflow that update in real time for people to explore. By selecting specific locations, you can retrieve data on discharge and gage height over time, with day to day updates and comparisons to averages and records of the past several decades. 

Check out the real-time graphics on the USGS site
