View source: R/usgs_ingest.R

Description

GetUsgsHucData gets all the USGS streamgage information within a HUC8. If an output path is supplied, an existing database is examined for existing records and the data retrieved from the USGS only extends the available and is saved in the data base. Could eventually use startDate and endDate to tweak this for calls which dont care about archival.
