About the hatchie river


The Hatchie River is a 238-mile-long river in western Tennessee that flows from the northern Mississippi border into the Mississippi River. It has a long history of flooding and was once a vital transportation route for early settlers. Today, the river is mostly used for recreational activities such as fishing, kayaking, and birdwatching. The Hatchie National Wildlife Refuge provides habitat for many species of wildlife and is a popular destination for nature enthusiasts. There are several reservoirs and dams along the river, including the 11,000-acre Carroll County Lake, which provides water for irrigation and drinking. The Hatchie River also supports a variety of agricultural uses, including cotton and soybean farming. Despite its importance to the local economy and ecosystem, the Hatchie River is threatened by pollution and habitat destruction caused by human activities.
