Is there a website that water meters on rivers report to? I am planning a white water river trip and I am worried the river will be dry. I know there are meters on the river but accessing them or finding a website with the current levels is a nightmare for one river to the next. I live in Arizona so ideally the site would at least have my rivers but I often head to Utah for the Colorado, the San Juan, and the Green rivers.

USGS: http://waterwatch.usgs.gov/index.php?r=us&id=ww_current

National Weather Service Map: http://water.weather.gov/ahps2/index.php?wfo=ffc

This is an easy to read table for GA, but I can't figure out how to navigate to other states on their site: http://www.srh.noaa.gov/ffc/html/rva.php

More NOAA for the Colorado Basin: http://www.cbrfc.noaa.gov/

And (with thanks to MaskedPlant): http://www.americanwhitewater.org/content/River/search-limited/

I was looking for some as well and from a forum was led to americanwhitewater.org/content/River/search-limited. Mind adding it to your answer? –  MaskedPlant May 31 '12 at 14:51
