  • Conduct interpretive appraisals describing the occurrence, availability, and biological characteristics of surface and ground water.
  • Conduct supportive basic and problem-oriented research in hydraulics, hydrology, and related fields of science.
  • Disseminate data and results of investigations and research through reports, maps, computerized information services, and other forms of public releases.
  • Provide scientific and technical assistance in hydrologic fields to other Federal, State, and local agencies.
