The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) is the Nation's largest natural sciences and civilian mapping agency and provides reliable and impartial scientific information to natural-resource managers, planners, the public, and other customers and stakeholders throughout the Nation. This information contributes to sound conservation and management of natural resources; enhances the quality of life by monitoring water, biological, energy, and mineral resources; and minimizes losses from numerous natural hazards. USGS disseminates results of data-collection programs and technical investigations in a wide variety of formats-including numerous scientific reports, maps, various databases, CDROMs, and other products. USGS data-collection activities and technical investigations in Georgia are conducted in cooperation with numerous local, State, and Federal agencies. Cooperating agencies include the City of Brunswick and Glynn County; Albany Water, Gas, and Light Commission; City of Lawrenceville; Georgia Department of Natural Resources; University System of Georgia; U.S. Army Corps of Engineers; U.S. Environmental Protection Agency; and National Park Service. In addition, some projects are funded through direct Congressional appropriation of Federal funds.
