The waters of the Apalachicola, Chattahoochee, and Flint Rivers provide valuable resources to the States of Alabama, Florida, and Georgia and people who live in these river basins.
During droughts, the Apalachicola, Chattahoochee, Flint (ACF) River Basin experiences complex water management challenges due to competing water needs between states and various sectors. Water supplies and instream flows become stressed during periods of drought, further intensifying the conflict over water. Targeted improvements for accessing and using drought information in the ACF can increase the broader understanding of how drought affects the basin, while also providing essential early warning and support for decision makers before, during, and after a drought.
The Drought in the ACF River Basin story map explores the historical context and impacts of drought on the basin, focusing on five key areas:
- Historical Drought
- Major Rivers in the ACF
- Water Management in the ACF Basin
