River Summary: The Savannah River is a major river in the southeastern United States. It originates in the mountains of North Carolina and flows for over 300 miles before eventually joining the Atlantic Ocean. The river has played an important role throughout history, serving as a transportation route for Native Americans, European colonizers, and American settlers. Today, the river is used for a variety of purposes, including hydroelectric power generation, irrigation, and recreation. The Savannah River is home to several major reservoirs, including Lake Hartwell, Lake Thurmond, and Lake Russell, which were created by dams constructed for flood control and hydroelectric power. These reservoirs provide a source of drinking water and support recreational activities such as boating, fishing, and swimming. Agriculturally, the river supports the production of crops such as cotton, peanuts, and soybeans in the surrounding areas.
