The Nebraska Department of Natural Resources provides an interactive map of water wells in the state. Wells are color-coded by use, and include geothermal, injection, irrigation, domestic, monitoring, and commerical wells, plus many other types. Users can click on each well to access registration and ownership information.
Additional map layers include transportation, aerial photography, and lakes and rivers.

The Connecticut Geological Survey's (CGS) map of surficial aquifer potential shows the areas with high potential for groundwater supply based on the thickness of coarse-grained deposits. Colors on the map indicate the thickness of coarse-grained deposits and the thickness of fine-grained deposits where they occur over coarse-grained sediments.

For years historians and scientists have tried to understand the ancient marvel of the Roman aqueducts to better understand Rome itself. Now archaeologists are using a new method - the buildup of travertine within the Anio Novus aqueduct - to determine how much water flowed into Rome.
Water demand in communities nationwide is decreasing due to better efficiency and more effective conservation programs, but also due to demographic shifts that may require a rethink in the way that water usage is modeled.
The U.S. Department of Energy's interactive map of the energy sector's climatic vulnerabilities allows users to explore how climatic events have impacted the energy sector over recent years. You can view how impacts due to increasing temperatures, decreased water availability, and increasing storms, floods, and sea level rise have adversely affected energy resource development, distribution, production, and transmission.
The U.S. Geological Survey provides a website of visualizations that show how California's extreme drought in the early-mid 2010s progressed through the early-mid part of the decade and then was relieved with significant rain and snowfall in 2016-2017. Visualizations of the extent and severity of drought, change in reservoir volumes, and streamflow compared to historic rates are all available on the website, which you scroll through to see different features.

The U.S. Geological Survey's (USGS) map of groundwater depletion shows the cumulative depletion of groundwater for 40 aquifer systems across the U.S (excluding Alaska). The map depicts depletion over the time period of 1900 to 2008 and is measured in cubic kilometers.
