DRAINAGE AREA - 136 mi².  
REVISIONS HISTORY -

Discharge above 755 cfs for the period Dec. 21, 2017, to Aug. 24, 2019, was revised on Mar. 25, 2020, based on changes to the stage-discharge rating.

SURFACE-WATER RECORDS
PERIOD OF RECORD -

DISCHARGE: October 1942 to September 1971. October 1987 to September 2002. December 2017 to current year.

GAGE-HEIGHT: August 1989 to September 1990. October 1993 to September 2002. December 2017 to current year.

GAGE - Satellite telemetry with a water-stage recorder and a continuous water-quality monitor. Datum of gage is 801.1 feet above the North American Vertical Datum (NAVD) of 1988.
COOPERATION - Gwinnett County Department of Water Resources.
REMARKS -
For period: 12/20/2017-09/30/2018: Gage-height records are good.
For period: 10/01/2018-09/30/2019: Gage-height records are good.
For period: 10/01/2019-09/30/2020: Gage-height records are fair. Discharge records are fair, except periods of estimated record which are poor.

WATER-QUALITY RECORDS
PERIOD OF RECORD - July 2019 to current year.
PERIOD OF DAILY RECORD -
SPECIFIC CONDUCTANCE: July 2019 to current year.
WATER TEMPERATURE: July 2019 to current year.
TURBIDITY: July 2019 to current year.
INSTRUMENTATION - Satellite telemetry with continuous water-quality monitor.
REMARKS -
For period: 07/19/2019-09/30/2019: Continuous water temperature and specific conductance records are good, turbidity record is poor.
For period: 10/01/2019-09/30/2020: Continuous water temperature and specific conductance records are good, turbidity record is poor.

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). Hydrologic event 9 indicates a routine sample while J designates a storm event sample. Laboratory chemical analyses are by RTI Laboratory, Livonia, MI. Laboratory sediment analyses are by the U.S. Geological Survey, KY Sediment Laboratory. Field determinations of discharge, specific conductance, pH, water temperature, turbidity, barometric pressure, microbiology, air temperature, and dissolved oxygen are by the U.S. Geological Survey.

SPECIFIC CONDUCTANCE: Maximum recorded, 514 microsiemens, September 28, 2019; minimum recorded, 20 microsiemens, September 17, 2020.
WATER TEMPERATURE: Maximum recorded, 28.0°C, August 13, 2019 and July 20, 2020; minimum recorded, 5.5 °C, December 26, 2020.
TURBIDITY; Maximum recorded, 938 FNU, November 1, 2019; minimum recorded 1.6 FNU, December 8, 2019.
