The Surface Water Monitoring and Sediment Studies Team is capable of gathering and interpreting surface water and sediment data. As a team, we perform tasks that are consistently identified as 'high value' and manage nearly $2 million dollars of the USGS Water Science Center revenue. Our cooperator base is the largest in the Center. Further, the water data web pages (an outlet for a core product of the SWMSS team) are the most visited web sites in the Center.

Through strategic resource allocation we have created a team of competent, highly motivated employees that consistently meet or exceed customer expectations for the timely delivery of accurate water resource data. To assure that the team stays current, and in accordance with the team's Vision Statement, team members that show an ability to innovate and a willingness to find new efficiencies are encouraged and given opportunities to lead and grow in an environment where quality is the primary focus.
