Ogeechee River Continuous Monitoring

The Ogeechee River is a 245 mile-long free-flowing river, that flows from Crawfordville, Ga. to Richmond Hill, Ga., discharging into the Atlantic Ocean at the north end of Ossabaw Island, Ga. The upper segments of the Ogeechee River have a designated use of fishing as described in the Georgia Rules and Regulations for Water Quality Control, while the lower saltwater influenced segments downstream from U.S. Highway 17 are classified for recreational use. Ongoing water quality and fisheries data indicate the river water quality is good.

In an effort to better serve the citizens of Georgia and interests along the Ogeechee River, EPD has established two continuous “real-time” monitoring stations at Rocky Ford Road and U.S. Highway 301 on the Ogeechee River in Screven County, Ga. These stations were established to monitor dissolved oxygen, pH, conductivity and water temperature in the river. Raw monitoring data will be uploaded to the website in 15 minute intervals for general informative purposes. All “raw-uncorrected” data will be reviewed and “corrected” for monitor drift on a monthly basis. Please refer to the “corrected” data here for the most reliable source of information available at the sites.


Disclaimer:

The “uncorrected” data displayed in the graphs below may contain values that are inaccurate due to monitor drift, equipment malfunctions, or changes in physical conditions at the site. Please refer to the “corrected data”, available for download here for the most reliable source of information at these sites. Additionally, stations may be taken offline on occasion for maintenance or repair work.
