We’ve put together a listing of useful and interesting website links where you can get more information on various subjects, local organizations, and our supporters.
The National Weather Service maintains a website that charts the data captured at the USGS gauge in Burtonsville as well as each of the other water gauges along the Schoharie Creek and its tributaries. NOAA’s graphs show the current water level and water flow rate and what it predicts the water level and flow rate to be over the next several days. This data is shown in relation to the flood categories for the area. CLICK HERE to view the NOAA site.

Our Environmental Study Team program has collected a lot of data while testing at various sites on the Schoharie Creek and the Normanskill Creek over the years. Some of this data has been posted in Google Maps for all to see. CLICK HERE to view the Schoharie River Test Site Map. To view the Normanskill Creek Test Site Map, CLICK HERE.
