Update 2021-12-03: Good Withlacoochee River water quality except GA 133 2021-12-02.
The Withlacoochee still tested clean for Saturday. No rain is expected for the next ten days except possibly a bit on Friday. So the rivers will probably stay clean.
Have fun fishing, swimming, and boating this weekend and week.
Jacob and Michael Bachrach tested at Knights Ferry, Nankin, and State Line Boat Ramps Saturday, and got clean results at all three.
Also, it’s great that people love our water trail signs, but please stop shooting at them, painting on them, and stealing them. They’re there to help people enjoy the rivers and keep them clean.
We have no new data from Valdosta since our last post, and no new data from FDOH or FDEP since September 9.
Thanks to Joe Brownlee and Georgia Power for a generous grant for water quality testing equipment and materials.
You or your organization could also donate to the WWALS volunteer water quality testing program.
Everything recently tested I’ve marked green on Swim Guide. Some locations still appear yellow for no recent data and historically mixed.
There are more pictures on the WWALS website.
