Streamflow conditions across most of the nation were normal to well-above normal during August—the third straight month that wet conditions have prevailed, according to a month-end check of water resources by the U.S. Geological Survey, Department of the Interior.

During August, 35% of the 164 key index gaging stations across the nation reported well-above normal streamflow conditions. The high streamflows occurred along a broad band extending from northeastern Nebraska southeast to western Georgia and from southwestern Montana to central California.
