River Summary: The Alapaha River is a 202-mile-long river that runs through southern Georgia and northern Florida. It is a tributary of the Suwannee River, which eventually flows into the Gulf of Mexico. The river has a rich history, with evidence of Native American settlements dating back thousands of years. Today, the Alapaha River is used for recreational activities such as fishing, swimming, and boating. It is also a vital source of water for agriculture in the region. There are several reservoirs and dams along the river, including the Alapaha River Reservoir, which was constructed in the 1960s to provide water for irrigation and recreation. Despite its importance, the river is threatened by pollution and other environmental issues, and efforts are underway to protect it for future generations.
