Water Conditions

Our segment of the beautiful Chattahoochee River lies between Buford Dam at Lake Lanier managed by the Corps of Engineers and Morgan Falls Dam operated by Georgia Power. In addition, the Chattahoochee is the main water source for the city of Atlanta and three states down stream. Consequently, water depth and water speed can fluctuate drastically throughout the year, and during winter months the temperature of the water can often dip below dangerous levels. In order to ensure the safety of our members, we have established guidelines relative to the river's flow rate and water temperature.
