Drought Conditions in the lower Apalachicola-Chattahoochee-Flint River

Drought Conditions in the lower Apalachicola-Chattahoochee-Flint River Basin in July 2011

Detailed Description

Drought Conditions in the lower Apalachicola-Chattahoochee-Flint River Basin in July 2011: USGS measured streamflow at 267 sites in the lower ACF Basin and western and central parts of the Aucilla–Suwanee–Ochlockonee River basin during July 2011 to measure the effects of drought and irrigation withdrawals on streamflow. In this part of the basin, water pumped from the upper Floridan aquifer reduces flows in larger streams such as the Flint River and can completely dry out smaller streams. Stream reaches shown in red are losing water to the upper Floridan aquifer, blue reaches are gaining water from the aquifer, brown reaches are completely dry.
