USGS Water-Year Summary 2023
LOCATION - Lat 34°04'27.2", long 83°00'14.2" referenced to North American Datum of 1983, Madison County, GA, Hydrologic Unit 03060104, at the bridge on Georgia Highway 72, 2.5 mi downstream of confluence with Holly Creek, 3.1 mi upstream from confluence with South Fork Broad River, and 2.0 mi northeast of Carlton.
DRAINAGE AREA - 760 mi².
REVISIONS HISTORY - WDR GA-1999, 2000: Annual mean.
DISCHARGE: July 1897 to December 1912, January 1913 to September 1997 (annual maximum discharge only), September 1997 to current year. Prior to January 1, 1918, published as "near Carlton" (02191500).
GAGE HEIGHT: October 1998 to current year.
GAGE - Satellite telemetry with water-stage recorder. Datum of gage is 406.6 feet above North American Vertical Datum (NAVD) of 1988 (leveling by Global Navigation Satellite System equipment using GEOID12A). Prior to January 1, 1918, a non-recording gage was located at Seaboard Coast Line Railway bridge about 0.75 miles downstream at datum 5.67 feet lower. From January 1, 1918 to September 1936, a non-recording gage was located at bridge 100 feet upstream at same datum. From October 1936 to April 1954, a non-recording gage was located at present site and datum.
COOPERATION - Georgia Department of Natural Resources, Environmental Protection Division.
REMARKS - Gage-height records are generally good. Discharge records are generally fair except for estimated discharges, which are poor. Additional details on the accuracy of the records can be obtained by contacting the USGS South Atlantic Water Science Center at gs-w-ga_nwisweb_data_inquiries@usgs.gov.
EXTREMES FOR PERIOD OF RECORD - Maximum discharge recorded, 70,000 cfs, August 25, 1908; maximum gage height recorded, 39.00 feet, at site and datum then in use, August 25, 1908; minimum daily discharge, 15 cfs, September 13, 2002.
PERIOD OF RECORD - September 1997 to September 2017.
INSTRUMENTATION - Tipping-bucket raingage.
PERIOD OF RECORD - January 2002 to December 2002, January 2007 to December 2007 (discontinued).
COOPERATION - Georgia Department of Natural Resources, Environmental Protection Division.
REMARKS - Analyzing agency is represented by the five-digit code listed under USGS Water Science Center special parameter code 99920. Laboratory analyses with analyzing agency code 81330 are by the Agricultural and Environmental Services Laboratory, College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences, The University of Georgia, Athens, Georgia; laboratory analyses with analyzing agency code 81341 are by the Laboratory Services Section, Environmental Protection Division, Georgia Department of Natural Resources. Field determinations of Discharge, Specific Conductance, pH, Water Temperature, Air Temperature, and Dissolved Oxygen are by the U.S. Geological Survey.
