USGS Water-Year Summary 2022
02198950 MIDDLE RIVER AT GA 25 AT PORT WENTWORTH, GA
LOCATION - Lat 32°09'56", long 81°08'18" referenced to North American Datum of 1983, Chatham County, GA, Hydrologic Unit 03060109, at downstream side of bridge on GA 25, 1.9 miles upstream from mouth at Savannah (Front) River, and 1.8 miles northeast of Port Wentworth.
DRAINAGE AREA - Indeterminate.
SURFACE-WATER RECORDS
PERIOD OF RECORD -
DISCHARGE: June 2009 to current year.
GAGE HEIGHT: June 2009 to current year.
WATER VELOCITY: June 2009 to current year.
GAGE - Satellite telemetry with a water-stage recorder and an acoustic velocity meter. Datum of gage is the North American Vertical Datum (NAVD) of 1988 (from U.S. Geological Survey levels). Prior to October 1, 2010, the datum of gage was 11.5 feet below the North American Vertical Datum (NAVD) of 1988.
COOPERATION - Georgia Department of Natural Resources, WYs 2009-2014; U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Savannah District, 2015WY to current year.

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, 31,000 cfs, October 8, 2016; maximum gage height recorded, 8.37 feet, September 11, 2017; minimum gage height recorded, -6.76 feet, January 3, 2014.
Extremes have been adjusted to NAVD of 1988.
