Peachtree Creek is a major tributary to the Chattahoochee River in Atlanta, Ga. The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) has been monitoring stream stage and streamflow at or near the Northside Drive gage location since 1958. The Peachtree Creek watershed occupies a large portion of the northeast metro Atlanta area and collects precipitation runoff that drains into the Chattahoochee River. This website offers information about the streamflow and flooding characteristics of Peachtree Creek.

As the residents of Woodward Way, which runs parallel to Peachtree Creek near Northside Drive know too well, very heavy rainfall can cause Peachtree Creek to overflow its banks and send waters flooding into their houses. A number of houses on Woodward Way have actually been raised onto stilts. The massive flooding of Sept. 2009 once again caused major flooding damage to houses in this area.
