    Notice - The USGS Water Resources Mission Area's priority is to maintain the safety and well-being of our communities, including providing critical situational awareness in times of flooding in all 50 U.S. states and additional territories. Our hydrologic monitoring stations continue to send data in near real-time to NWISWeb, and we are continuing critical water monitoring activities to. The U.S. Geological Survey’s Toxic Substances Hydrology Program (Toxics Program) is developing information and tools on emerging water-quality issues that will be used to design and improve water-quality monitoring and assessment programs of the USGS and others, and for proactive decision-making by industry, regulators, the research community.

    Project Description: Library Collection Services is searching for an intern to assist with maintenance of the Library and Archives' federal map collection. The intern will enter data into an inventory of over 1, U. S. Geological Survey maps not related to Tennessee that will be placed on the federal documents needs and offers lists so that other federal depositories can acquire, if needed. The U.S. Department ofthe Interior's (DOl) USGS has 8, employees and is responsible for providing the Nation with reliable and impartial scientific information.
