The Savannah River Basin
The Savannah River spans nearly 400 miles through three states and a variety of wild ecosystems: from its mountain headwaters, to the lakes in the Upper Basin, to the beautiful shoals, to the cypress swamps of the Lower Savannah and meandering marshes on the coast.
Its many uses are as diverse as the 1.4 million people who depend on it. We use the Savannah River for drinking water, fishing, swimming and recreation, to power our industries and more. And yet, it's all connected. We are One River.
Savannah Riverkeeper is centrally headquartered in Augusta, Georgia at the middle mark of the river system. We have staff in Savannah, Georgia, as well as affiliates the Lower Savannah River Alliance located in Allendale, South Carolina.
