Water Quality and Quantity

Chattahoochee Riverkeeper – Neighborhood Water Watch
West Atlanta neighborhoods have been teaming up with Chattahoochee Riverkeeper (CRK) to test water quality in Proctor Creek since 2010. These tests help CRK trackers find pollution sources and notify the City of Atlanta. Samples are collected every Thursday and tested for turbidity, conductivity, and E.coli bacteria. To view test results CLICK HERE, then select a location from the site list or interactive map.

United States Geological Survey (USGS) National Water Information System
The USGS collects water quantity and quality data every 15 minutes from water monitoring sites throughout the country and posts the data in real time on the agency’s website. Data collected includes precipitation, gage height (aka water level), discharge (aka flow rate), water temperature, pH and other parameters. In Proctor Creek, USGS currently operates three monitoring stations listed below:
– Proctor Creek at Hortense Way – Click Here
