Update 2021-03-29: Still clean last week, filthy Friday before, Withlacoochee River 2021-03-26.
Clean everywhere, according to five WWALS testers who sampled spots on 80 Withlacoochee River miles Thursday, plus two on the Little River and one on the Alapaha River.
The latest we have from Madison Health is for Tuesday, and from Valdosta is for Friday a week ago, but those were clean, too. There’s been little to no recent rain, so probably nothing bad has washed into the rivers.
Good news for this morning’s paddle from Troupville Boat Ramp to Spook Bridge that Scott James calls the Mayor’s Paddle.
Laissez les bon bateaux rouler!
Thanks to Gretchen Quarterman for testing at Troupville Boat Ramp on the Little River, today’s put-in, and at GA 133 on the Withlacoochee River just upstream from the Little River Confluence.
Thanks to Elizabeth Brunner for testing upstream along GA 122 at Folsom Bridge on the Little River, Hagan Bridge on the Withlacoochee River, and Lakeland Boat Ramp on the Alapaha River.
Thanks to Michael and Jacob Bachrach for testing at Knights Ferry, Nankin, and State Line Boat Ramps on the Withlacoochee River.
And thanks to Gus Cleary for testing at Cleary Bluff downstream of Allen Ramp on the Withlacoochee River.
