In 1999, the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) and the Georgia Department of Natural Resources, Environmental Protection Division, began a cooperative study to investigate the hydrology and hydrogeology of the Lake Seminole area, southwestern Georgia, and northwestern Florida. Lake Seminole is a 37,500-acre impoundment that was created in 1954 by the construction of the Jim Woodruff Lock and Dam just south of the confluence of the Chattahoochee and Flint Rivers. Recent negotiations between the States of Alabama, Florida, and Georgia over water-allocation rights have brought attention to the need for a better understanding of both the hydrologic and hydrogeologic systems associated with Lake Seminole.
