Welcome to the USGS New Hampshire-Vermont Office of the New England Water Science Center (WSC). We are proud to be part of the Nation's premier earth and biological science agency, providing the hydrologic data, investigative studies, and research needed for the characterization and management of water resources in our two States. With a cadre of nearly 50 scientists, technicians, and support staff in our Pembroke, N.H., and Montpelier, Vt., offices, we work in cooperation with many Federal, State, and local agencies to evaluate the source, distribution, use, quantity, quality, and biology of water resources. For more information about us, our programs, and products, please select a topic below. We are pleased to be able to provide you with online services and welcome your comments and suggestions on how we can improve them.

The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) has been serving the Nation as an independent fact-finding agency that collects, monitors, analyzes, and provides scientific understanding about natural resources since its creation by Congress in 1879. Today, the USGS stands as the sole science agency for the Department of the Interior. The value of the USGS to the Nation rests on its ability to carry out studies on a national scale and to sustain long-term monitoring and assessment of natural resources. Because it has no regulatory or management mandate, the USGS provides impartial science that serves the needs of our changing world. The diversity of scientific expertise enables the USGS to carry out large-scale, multi-disciplinary investigations that build the base of knowledge about the Earth.
