California Water Science Center Webcams


Webcams have been installed at several real-time streamgaging sites. The webcams provide valuable information to the National Weather Service, emergency managers, and area residents to evaluate real-time conditions in river environments during storms. The visual record of flooding and other river events also provides valuable research data for the USGS. Many of these webcam installations are part of the USGS Multi-Hazards Demonstration Project. The index below is ordered by the webcams' north-to-south locations.
