North Carolina Projects and Studies

Hydrologic Hazards

Provide information and real-time data needed by resource- and emergency-management officials to respond to and mitigate the effects of floods and droughts in North Carolina.

Charlotte/Mecklenburg Hydrologic Network study area map

The Charlotte-Mecklenburg Hydrologic Network installed its first raingage in 1989, and has grown to 72 raingages and 54 streamgages. Originally the network used landline telemetry for data retrieval but has been upgraded to transmit data using ultrahigh frequency (UHF) radios and satellite telemetry.

Pee Dee National Wildlife Refuge flow model study area map

The U.S. Geological Survey and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service entered into a cooperative agreement to develop a model of streamflow and inundation in the Pee Dee National Wildlife Refuge area. The resulting flow model will be used to better understand streamflow and flooding in the area and serve to protect refuge assets and sensitive habitat areas.
