Hydrology Update

HYDROLOGY...
No Flood Concerns expected from the recent rainfall. Widespread 2
to 3 inches of rain occurred over Southeast Alabama and portions
of Southwest Georgia on Tuesday and Wednesday of this week. The
rain primarily occurred in the upper headwaters of the major
basins affecting the Pea and Choctawhatchee basins in Alabama,
Flint River basins in Georgia and the Chattahoochee River basin
along the Alabama-Georgia Border. 1 to 2 inches fell in the upper
Ochlockonee River basin in South Georgia.

Soils continue to moisten up with each passing system, and the
smaller creeks and streams are becoming more responsive with each
event. With this most recent event, there were minor rises on
smaller creeks and streams to near or slightly above action stage
in SE Alabama & SW Georgia. There is enough runoff to begin
generating minor rises downstream on the lower Choctawhatchee and
Ochlockonee Rivers. Flows on the Flint and Chattahoochee Rivers
are so low, that the runoff has had little impact on downstream
flows affecting the lower Flint River and discharges from
reservoirs on the Chattachoochee into the Apalachicola River.
