The measurement of stage (height) and, usually, computation of water flow in a stream or river. A streamgage is a hydrological monitoring installation at which a record of stage and, usually, flow (also called discharge) of a stream or river is obtained. Over 90% of the streamgages in the United States are operated by the Department of the Interior's U.S. Geological Survey (USGS). Currently, about 7800 streamgages are operated by the USGS, and over 90% provide real-time streamflow information that is published on the World Wide Web.
