About the ogeechee river

The Ogeechee River spans approximately 294 miles in Georgia and empties into the Atlantic Ocean. It has played a significant role in Georgia's history, serving as a transportation route for Native Americans, explorers, and settlers. The river's hydrology is impacted by a series of dams and reservoirs, including the J. Strom Thurmond Dam and Lake, which was built for flood control and hydroelectric power generation. The river is also utilized for recreational activities such as fishing, kayaking, and boating. However, the river has faced environmental challenges, with pollution incidents impacting its water quality, leading to concerns for agricultural uses as well. The Ogeechee River is an important resource for Georgia's economy and environment, requiring continued efforts to protect its health and ensure its sustainability.
