Our objective is to develop the information necessary for establishing a regulatory basis for sediment control. We present sediment data at four USGS monitoring stations in the Upper Chattahoochee River Watershed. The data show that TSS is a strong function of discharge. A unique relationship between TSS and discharge is found for all stations when the discharge is normalized by its long-term mean. With this regional relationship, we can establish a baseline for comparing watersheds as a function of discharge.
