SURFACE-WATER RECORDS
PERIOD OF RECORD -
DISCHARGE: December 2009 to current year.
GAGE HEIGHT: December 2009 to current year.
WATER VELOCITY: December 2009 to current year.
GAGE - Satellite telemetry with a water-stage recorder and acoustic velocity meter. Velocity data represents the average water velocity at the downstream cross-section with positive values in the downstream direction. Datum of gage is the North American Vertical Datum (NAVD) of 1988 (levels by U.S. Geological Survey). Prior to October 1, 2011, datum of gage was 3.92 feet below NAVD88.
COOPERATION - Georgia Department of Natural Resources, Environmental Protection Division.
REMARKS -
For period: 10/01/2014-02/28/2018: Discharge records fair. Gage-height records good. Water velocity records fair.
Streamflow at this site is affected significantly by astronomical tides. By convention, the U.S. Geological Survey has established ebb (seaward) flows as positive flows and flood (landward) flows as negative flows.
EXTREMES FOR PERIOD OF RECORD - Maximum discharge recorded, 32,600 cfs, February 9, 2016; maximum gage height recorded, 5.12 feet, July 18, 2013; minimum gage height recorded, -3.89 feet, December 13, 2010.
