USGS announces changes to NHD and WBD dynamic service endpoints

The National Hydrography Dataset (NHD) and Watershed Boundary Dataset (WBD) dynamic web-based map service endpoints migrated to new Cloud endpoints on Feb 2, 2018.  

Anyone using the previous endpoints will need to update those references to the new endpoints.

New USGS Hydrography web-based map service endpoints:

National Hydrography Dataset

Previous Endpoint:

https://services.nationalmap.gov/arcgis/rest/services/nhd/MapServer

New Cloud Endpoint:

https://hydro.nationalmap.gov/arcgis/rest/services/nhd/MapServer

Watershed Boundary Dataset

Previous Endpoint:

https://services.nationalmap.gov/arcgis/rest/services/wbd/MapServer

New Cloud Endpoint:

https://hydro.nationalmap.gov/arcgis/rest/services/wbd/MapServer

This migration will improve performance and reliability while keeping separate and independently consumable NHD and WBD services. These new Cloud endpoints also provide a more logical hierarchy for accessing USGS Hydrography web-based map services. This change will impact applications presently consuming the NHD and WBD layers from the previous service addresses.
