Georgia Stream and River Levels
The United States Geological Survey has a number of stream gages located throughout Georgia. These estimate stream levels, discharges and record them over time. This data is published on the web and many stations allow users to plot custom graphs. Get updated Georgia river and stream levels from USGS here.
Georgia Stream and River Level Alerts
The United States Geological Survey has a system that will send you an email message when flood levels are reached on any steam with USGS gaging equipment that you have selected. Sign up here to recieve Georgia stream and river level alerts.
Georgia Water Publications
The United States Geological Survey has a number of publications related to water use and water resources in Georgia. View the water resource publications for Georgia here.
Georgia Drought Map
The United States Geological Survey publishes updated drought maps on their website. There you can view a map that shows where below normal 7-day average stream flow conditions were recently recorded. The maps are updated daily. Get a current Georgia drought map here.
Georgia Precipitation Map
The National Atlas Project has precipitation maps for Georgia and other states that you can view online or print for personal use. These maps show the average annual precipitation levels mapped across the state. View and print an Georgia precipitation map here. Precipitation maps prepared by the PRISM Climate Group at Oregon State University and the United States Geological Survey.
Georgia Elevation Map
The topography of an area determines the direction of stream flow and often is a primary influence on the geographic distribution of precipitation. View a detailed Georgia elevation map.
