Beta version 4 has arrived!
Beta version 4 is now available for most states on a trial basis, and version 3 remains available. Beta version 4 provides a single user interface (at http://ssdev.cr.usgs.gov/streamstats/) for all states that are implemented, rather than separate applications for each state, as in versions 2 and 3, and the user interface is more user friendly than previous versions. Limited beta version 4 documentation can be accessed by clicking on the Help button in the user interface. Also, information for user-selected ungaged sites currently cannot be obtained for the Arkansas, Arizona, Georgia, Iowa, Indiana, North Carolina, Oregon, South Carolina, Tennessee, and Washington because of unique functionality for those states that is not yet implemented. Users are encouraged to provide comments and report bugs by use of the Help button on the interface. See the StreamStats home page for a description of the differences in capabilities between version 3 and beta version 4.
Please help us conserve our server system resources by closing the Interactive Map window when you are finished using it. Doing to will help ensure system availablility for all users. Thank you. Please contact the StreamStats by email at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions.
StreamStats for Georgia can be used to estimate the magnitude of peak flows for Georgia under natural streamflow conditions at the 2-, 5-, 10-, 25-, 50-, 100-, 200-, and 500-year recurrence-intervals, which have the probability of exceedance in any single year of 50, 20, 10, 4, 2, 1, 0.5, and 0.2 percent, respectively. The report below presents the equations used to estimate the flow statistics, describes the errors associated with the estimates, and describes the methods used to develop the equations and to measure the basin characteristics used in the equations. Users should familiarize themselves with the report before using StreamStats to obtain estimates of streamflow statistics for ungaged sites.

General information on the Interactive Map application, as well as specific sources and computation methods for basin characteristics are available here.
Information for streamgages that is provided in output from the Gaging Station Information tool has not yet been updated for Georgia. This information will be updated as soon as possible, and this notice will be removed at that time. Meanwhile, additional statistics can be found in the report above, as well as in the reports:
Streamflow estimates obtained for ungaged sites by use of the Estimate Flows Based on Similar Streamgaging Stations tool will be based on streamflow statistics from all three of the reports noted above.
