Click on the basin of interest to access near realtime river stages as well as other information from gages within that basin. The information is subject to revision and should be used accordingly.

In 2001, the USGS operates about 125 stream-flow gaging stations throughout South Dakota in cooperation with Federal, State, and local agencies. Historic streamflow information is available for all of the 125 stations and near realtime data is available for selected stations on the USGS, Current Streamflow conditions for South Dakota, homepage.
