Station 02109500, Waccamaw River at Freeland, to be discontinued due to sequestration
The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) North Carolina Water Science Center will discontinue operation of Station Number 02109500 WACCAMAW RIVER AT FREELAND, NC due to budget cuts as a result of sequestration. This streamgage on the Waccamaw River has been continuously active since July 1939. If you have an interest in the collection of data at this gage, or are able to assist with funding, please contact Jeanne Robbins at firstname.lastname@example.org or (919) 571-4017.
Additional streamgages may be affected if partners reduce their funding to support USGS streamgages. The USGS is working to identify which, if any additional, streamgages will be impacted and will post this information as it becomes available. Streamgages are used nationwide to predict and address drought and flood conditions by monitoring water availability. The USGS and over 850 Federal, State, and local agencies cooperatively fund the USGS streamgaging network, which consists of over 8,000 streamgages.
