The Rivers South, Part 1

Player utilities

Listen to the story.

Reporter Clay Scott takes us down the Chattahoochee River. The river begins in Northern Georgia and makes its way south to Florida where it ultimately empties into the Gulf of Mexico. Along the way, the Chattahoochee runs through Atlanta where a growing population, and the drought, are putting pressures on the river's ecoystems and the livelihood of fishermen further downstream.
