The Chattahoochee River System: An Economic and Ecological Wonder

Chattahoochee River System: Economic/Ecological Wonder

"Highly Recommended. As the world population grows, the need for clean, resourceful, and reusable water increases, as do the challenges we face in sharing fresh water supplies. This documentary explores the southeast United States, showing us the beauty and usefulness of the Chattahoochee River System; however, its objective, to enlighten viewers to appreciate and value our valuable fresh water resources, can apply to any geographic area." -National Media Review
The Chattahoochee River begins as the Chattahoochee Spring in the Appalachian Mountains of northeastern Georgia, flows south, forming the southern half of the Georgia and Alabama state line, merges with the Flint River, then, in Florida, becomes the Apalachicola River, which flows to the Gulf of Mexico; this system of waterways, also called the ACF River Basin watershed, is an economic and ecological wonder. Controlled by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, the system provides hydroelectricity, flood control, domestic and industrial water, vast recreation opportunities, and river barge navigation. Worth noting, the Chattahoochee helps form Lake Lanier, which is the primary resource for drinking water in metro Atlanta. This documentary allows viewers to see it all, offering a pictorial history of how the river system looked in the 1940's before Lake Lanier was built, it also focuses on the drastic changes in landscape and ecology since. Here we see the beauty, but also learn of the problems involved with water sharing, such as drought and pollution; experts Darcie Holcomb, Pat Robbins, Robert Fuller, Lee Edmiston and Reggie Weaver provide insight about the engineering and environmental challenges, and, overall we leave with a better understanding that water is something none of us can take for granted. Produced by Scott Kimbler. 2010 PIJSCA 53 min.
