The United States Geological Survey has a number of stream gages located throughout Maryland. These estimate stream levels, discharges and record them over time. This data is published on the web and many stations allow users to plot custom graphs. Get updated Maryland river and stream levels from USGS here.


 Maryland Stream and River Level Alerts
Maryland water level alerts
The United States Geological Survey has a system that will send you an email message when flood levels are reached on any steam with USGS gaging equipment that you have selected. Sign up here to recieve Maryland stream and river level alerts.
