All-time record low river flows into the Chesapeake Bay were recorded for May, according to hydrologists at the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS). Flow into the bay has been below average for the last 10 months. Average daily freshwater inflow to the Chesapeake Bay in May was about 29.1 billion gallons per day (bgd), which is about 46 percent of the long-term average (62.6 bgd).

At the end of February 1998, streamflow in the Potomac River at Washington, DC, and total freshwater inflow to the Chesapeake Bay were the highest on record, at about 39.9 billion gallons per day (bgd) and 152.4 bgd, respectively, according to the U. S. Geological Survey (USGS).

The steady precipitation over the Potomac drainage basin for the first several months of 1998 has resulted in a record-high flow of about 90 billion gallons per day (bgd) for the year so far, about 8% higher than flow by this time in 1996, when Potomac River flow set a new all-time high record of about 83. bgd.
