Proposed Monitoring Sites
The SCDNR hosted two streamflow monitoring workshops on 2/3/16 and 3/10/16 to highlight streamflow monitoring needs in the State and to solicit additional monitoring recommendations. The workshops were attended by a wide variety of stakeholders including local, state and federal agencies, water suppliers, power utilities and conservation groups. A total of 105 recommendations were made and are presented in the map below (PDF version of this map - 8mb). Sites designated as “reactivation” are sites where the United States Geological Survey (USGS) has previously collected data on streamflow but are not currently collecting data. New monitoring reaches are streams where the USGS has not previously collected data. Most sites are recommended for stream discharge measurements; however, conductivity monitoring was recommended for several sites along the coast, while a few other sites in the State were recommended for stream discharge and water quality monitoring.
