The Instantaneous Data Archive (IDA)

The USGS South Atlantic Water Science Center - Georgia is pleased to announce the release of IDA, the Instantaneous Data Archive, an online access to the instantaneous values of streamflow used to compute the traditional daily-mean values. Georgia was one of the first USGS offices to implement IDA. To access this new online archive of data, please visit our Center's homepage at http://ga.water.usgs.gov/ and click on the IDA link near the bottom of the page.

Please note that the electronic archive only goes back to the mid- to late-1980's since that is when electronic storage of streamflow data began.

Droughtwatch: The 2007 drought in Georgia worsened during September

The 2007 drought in Georgia worsened during September, bringing many of the State's rivers and streams to their lowest levels ever recorded for the month. This was the lowest September streamflow on record for 31 monitoring stations with at least 20 years of record in Georgia. September 2007 saw new all time record low daily streamflows at 15 rivers with 20 or more years of record in Georgia.

Rivers across the State are experiencing moderate to severe hydrologic drought. This was the lowest September streamflow recorded in 79 years for the Etowah River at Canton; 73 years for the Broad River near Bell, 69 years for the Ichawaynochaway Creek at Milford, and 68 years for Tobesofkee Creek near Macon. Streamflow was the lowest recorded in 69 years for any month for the Conasauga River at Tilton. The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS)—and its Federral, State, and local cooperators—maintain 233 streamgagging stations and 209 monitoring wells throughout Georgia. Additional Georgia drought information and real-time river and ground water levels are available on the Web at http://ga.water.usgs.gov/

A fact sheet (PDF) about the drought can be found at http://ga.water.usgs.gov/drought/drought_sept2007.pdf

Another USGS Georgia Streamgage Joins the Centigenarian Club

The Flint River at Bainbridge streamgage is a critical sentinel that measures the "pulse" of the river, providing continuous real-time water level and streamflow data during floods and droughts. A celebration to mark the start of hydrologic data collection on the Flint River at Bainbridge 100 years ago was held at the pavilion in Cheney Griffin Park in Bainbridge on Monday, Oct. 1st.

You can find out more from the Bainbridge Post's newspaper article: http://www.zwire.com/site/printerFriendly.cfm?brd=2068&dept_id=387472&newsid=18852687
