Hydrologic Data in and around Charlotte and Mecklenburg County

Location of Mecklenburg County

The U.S. Geological Survey and Charlotte-Mecklenburg StormWater Services cooperatively support a surface water data-collection and real-time storm tracking network.

  • The network is comprised of more than 125 sites collecting 5-minute interval data.

  • Data from most sites are available on NWISWeb, usually within 10 minutes of being recorded.

  • During extreme conditions when thresholds are exceeded at a gage, data are immediately reported as part of the Flood Information and Notification System (FINS).

For more information and background about the project, see Charlotte-Mecklenburg Project
