Project Description

Adequate freshwater flow to the rivers and estuaries is not only critical to the health and function of those ecosystems, but it is also important for the support of a thriving state, local and coastal economy. The USGS and the EPA will collaborate on a comprehensive, large-scale project to provide vital information on the timing and delivery of fresh water to streams, bays, estuaries, and wetlands of the Gulf States. This proposal includes the installation and operation of eighteen streamgages, based on a flow alteration gap analysis, to create a more robust gage network and help to minimize flow alteration predictions in future analyses.
