ABOUT THE GEORGIA
Water Resources of Georgia
Welcome to the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) - South Atlantic Water Science Center web page on Georgia water resources. 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 and Hurricane Matthew

SAWSC is also responding to the rains and flooding being forecast by ensuring that USGS real-time gages are operational and providing critical information on river stage and rainfall to the public, National Weather Service, and emergency management officials. In addition, USGS deployed staff to make streamflow measurements at streamgages across the state to verify and update the relations river stage and streamflow. These relations are critical for determining the volume of water that passes a streamgaging station at any given river stage and are used in issuing flood warnings, mapping floodplains, monitoring water-quality and environmental conditions and managing water resources.
Georgia Water Data and Information
Real-Time Precipitation Data
We now have a map and data table-based system to allow you to view real-time precipitation at Georgia water-monitoring sites. The rainfall maps and tables are updated continuously and display data from the last 3 hours up to the last month.
