The Coosawattee River is a 49-mile-long river located in northern Georgia. It flows through the Appalachian Mountains and is a tributary of the Oostanaula River. The river has a rich history, and Native American tribes have lived in the area for thousands of years. The name "Coosawattee" comes from the Cherokee language and means "old town." The river is an important source of water for irrigation and hydroelectric power generation. There are several dams and reservoirs along the river, including the Carters Lake Dam and the Coosawattee Dam. These dams provide recreational opportunities for fishing, boating, and swimming. The river is also used for agricultural purposes and provides water for crops and livestock.
