Outline of Georgia

Water resources data for the 2004 water year for Georgia consists of records of stage, discharge, and water quality of streams; lake and reservoir levels, ground-water levels, and ground-water quality published in two volumes in a digital format on a CD-ROM. Volume one of this report contains water resources data for Georgia collected during water year 2004, including: discharge records of 176 gaging stations; stage for 192 gaging stations; precipitation for 158 gaging stations; information for 19 lakes and reservoirs; continuous water-quality records for 46 stations; the annual peak stage and annual peak discharge for 64 crest-stage partial-record stations; and miscellaneous streamflow measurements at 39 stations, and miscellaneous water-quality data at 47 stations in Georgia. Volume two of this report contains water resources data for Georgia collected during calendar year 2004, including continuous water-level records of 179 ground-water wells, discrete chloride sample data at 72 wells, and ground-water quality data collected at 13 wells and 1 drain. These data represent that part of the National Water Data System collected by the U.S. Geological Survey and cooperating State and Federal agencies in Georgia.

Note: Historically, this report was published as a paper report. For the 1999 and subsequent water-year reports, the Water Resources Data for Georgia changed to a new, more informative and functional format on CD-ROM. The format is based on a geographic information system (GIS) user interface that allows the user to view map locations of the hydrologic monitoring stations and networks within respective river basins.
