Summary

Digital flood-inundation maps for a 12.6-mile reach of the Withlacoochee River from Skipper Bridge Road to St. Augustine Road, Lowndes County, Georgia, were created by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) in cooperation with the city of Valdosta and Lowndes County, Georgia. The inundation maps, which can be accessed through the USGS Flood Inundation Mapping Science Web site at http://water.usgs.gov/osw/flood_inundation/, depict estimates of the areal extent and depth of flooding corresponding to selected water levels (stages) at the USGS streamgage Withlacoochee River at Skipper Bridge Road, near Bemiss, Georgia (023177483). Real-time stage information from this streamgage can be obtained at the National Water Information System Web Interface [...]

Purpose

This dataset was created to support the development of flood-peak inundation maps for the Withlacoochee River in Lowndes County, Georgia. Shapefiles represent the modeled flood inundation extents of a 12.6-mile reach of the Withlacoochee River from Skipper Bridge Road to St. Augustine Road, Lowndes County, Georgia. These flood inundation extents are for 1.0-foot intervals referenced to the water surface elevation and ranging from streamgage (023177483) stage 10.7 feet to 32.7 feet (water surface elevation 131.0 feet to 153.0 feet), and will be used on the U.S. Geological Survey Flood Inundation Mapper website. Rasters represent the inundation depths corresponding to each flood extent.
