The NRFA have published 'Live data' pages for stations added to the most recent update of the Environment Agency’s near real-time data API.
This page shows NRFA archived flows (in black) and near real-time flows from the Environment Agency's Hydrology API (in red) where available. NRFA data are quality controlled before archival and release. Near real-time data are from the Environment Agency's Hydrology API and consist of checked and unchecked data. More information, including on quality flags for near real-time data is available in the API documentation.
In the future, we aim to provide a service to download the combined time series. In the meantime, the NRFA data can be downloaded from the ‘Daily flow data’ tab.
Currently near real-time data is available at 495 stations in England which can be found by filtering on our Search page. Click the ‘Filter’ button in the bottom left-hand corner of the map, then choose NRFA data types > Live data = Yes and ‘Add Filter’.
As part of the work the NRFA are undertaking in conjunction with the Environment Agency’s near real-time data API, there are 28 new stations in England where daily mean flow data are now available on the NRFA.
