Water Resources of Georgia
Welcome to the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) Web page for the water resources of Georgia; this is your direct link to all kinds of water-resource information. Here you'll find information on Georgia's rivers and streams. You'll also find information about groundwater, water quality, and many other topics. The USGS operates the most extensive satellite network of stream-gaging stations in the state, many of which form the backbone of flood-warning systems.
