Chattahoochee River

Learn how you can help protect the water quality of the Chattahoochee River in a workshop scheduled for Thursday, Nov. 16 from 6 – 8 p.m.

Discover how our everyday activities can affect the water quality of this incredible water resource right here in our own backyard.

During the workshop, you’ll also learn more about the Chattahoochee River Corridor and about the BacteriALERT program. Representatives of the National Resource Division of the Atlanta Regional Commission (ARC), the Chattahoochee RiverKeeper, the Gwinnett Department of Water Resources and City Staff will be on hand to answer questions.

How safe is it to swim, wade, and boat in the Chattahoochee River today? For a highly urbanized river such as the Chattahoochee, much of the answer depends on bacteria levels in the water. This website provides “real time” turbidity data, the estimated E coli bacteria count, the most recent E. coli bacteria counts (sample collected each Thursday), and National Park Service health advisories for two locations on the Chattahoochee River (view map).
