Drink or Swim?

The river that once led General Oglethorpe to Savannah was on the brink of suffocation. Legislation and conservation efforts have continually tried to address the problem, but are they succeeding?

According to reports in 2014- not really. Savannah River is the third most toxic in the country, with levels of pollution in clear violation of the Clean Water Act, and water that people are afraid to touch. No wonder when they tried dying it green for St. Patty's Day, it turned orange!
