Click to hide Water-Year Summary instructions and information
  • Water-Year Summary reports summarize a year of hydrologic data in a printer-friendly format.
  • For water years 2014 onward, choose a water year and parameter and an on-demand Water-Year Summary report will be generated.
  • For water years 2006 through 2013, choose a water year and an Annual Water Data Report will be provided.
  • For water years 2005 and earlier, Annual Water Data Reports may be available in digital format.
  • Not all sites have reports available for every water year.

USGS Water-Year Summary 2019
02335880 CHATTAHOOCHEE RIVER AT POWERS FERRY & I-285 NEAR ATLANTA, GA
LOCATION - Lat 33°54'08", long 84°26'30" referenced to North American Datum of 1927, Fulton County, GA, Hydrologic Unit 03130001,
SURFACE-WATER RECORDS
REMARKS -
For period 03/30/2016-06/08/2016: Gage height records poor.
For period 06/09/2016-04/17/2019: Gage height records good.
EXTREMES FOR PERIOD OF RECORD - Maximum gage-height recorded, 10.91 feet, December 28, 2018; minimum gage-height recorded, 3.18 feet, January 29, 2017.
WATER-QUALITY RECORDS
REMARKS -
For period 03/30/2016-09/30/2016: Continuous water temperature records and specific conductance records are rated good. Turbidity records are fair.
For period 10/01/2016-11/06/2016: Continuous water temperature records and specific conductance records are rated good. Turbidity records are fair.

Data for parameter code 63680 (turbidity) were collected using a probe with the following specifications: turbidity, water, monochrome near infra-red LED light, 780-900 nm, detection angle 90 +/-2.5 degrees, FNU (Formazin Nephelometric Units). Prior to October 1, 2004, turbidity data were published using parameter code 00076: turbidity, water, unfiltered, NTU (Nephelometric Turbidity Units).

Discrete sample turbidity measurements are taken in the lab using a Hach 2100 and are reported in Nephelometric Turbidity Ratio Units, (NTRU). Calibration is performed on the meter using Hach supplied and approved standards. USGS Georgia District policy has stated that turbidity will have a lower reporting threshold of 2 NTRU and an upper limit of 1,100 NTRU. The precision and accuracy associated with turbidity has required the overall record to be rated fair.

EXTREMES FOR PERIOD OF RECORD -

SPECIFIC CONDUCTANCE: Maximum recorded, 134 microsiemens, October 19, 2017 ; minimum recorded, 39 microsiemens, December 29, 2018 . WATER TEMPERATURE: Maximum recorded, 28.2°C, July 10, 2017; minimum recorded, 2.52°C, January 18, 2018. TURBIDITY: Maximum recorded, 547 FNU, June 15, 2017; minimum recorded, 2.2 FNU, March 17, 2017.
