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 2023
LOCATION - Lat 30°54'10.8", long 84°44'58.2" referenced to North American Datum of 1983, Decatur County, GA, Hydrologic Unit 03130010, at the dead end of Smith's Landing Road,on right bank, 1 mi upstream of Smith Landing, and 3 mi north-northeast of Reynoldsville.
DRAINAGE AREA - 571 mi². revised.
REVISIONS HISTORY - WDR GA-2013: Drainage area.
DISCHARGE: October 1998 to current year.
GAGE HEIGHT: October 2004 to current year.
WATER-VELOCITY: November 2004 to current year.
GAGE - Satellite telemetry with a water-stage recorder and an acoustic velocity meter. Velocity data represents the average water velocity at the upstream cross-section of the bridge with positive values in the downstream direction. Datum of gage is the North American Vertical Datum (NAVD) of 1988 (leveling by Global Positioning System equipment). Prior to October 1, 2006, the datum of gage was 0.52 feet below the North American Vertical Datum (NAVD) of 1988.
COOPERATION - U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.
REMARKS - Gage-height records are generally good. Water velocity records are generally good. Discharge records are generally good 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.

Discharges above 2,500 cfs are not published.
Water velocity data represent water velocity at the downstream cross-section of the bridge with positive values in the downstream direction.

EXTREMES FOR PERIOD OF RECORD - Maximum gage-height recorded, 85.58 feet, April 4, 2009; minimum daily discharge, 21 cfs, August 27, 2007.
PERIOD OF RECORD - November 2007 to August 2011.
INSTRUMENTATION - Tipping-bucket raingage.

SPECIFIC CONDUCTANCE: Maximum recorded, 290 microsiemens, July 08, July 16, 2018; minimum recorded, 70 microsiemens, February 13, 2018.

WATER TEMPERATURE: Maximum recorded, 28.8 °C August 01, 2021 ; minimum recorded, 10.0 °C, January 31, 2019.

DISSOLVED OXYGEN: Maximum recorded, 10.2 mg/L, January 31, 2019; minimum recorded, <0.20 mg/L; October 14 - 21, 2018.
