Water-quality monitoring: Established February 1968 as a long-term trends water-quality monitoring station in cooperation with the Georgia Water Quality Control Board of the Department of Public Health, which ceased to exist in July 1972, at which time all the Board's functions were assumed by the newly formed Environmental Protection Division of the Georgia Department of Natural Resources. Since July 1972, the water-quality monitoring at this station is conducted as part of the USGS-Georgia EPD Cooperative Water-quality Monitoring Program.
