Savannah River Mercury TMDL Data Report
November 28, 2000
US-EPA, Region 4, SESD, Athens, Georgia
Point source discharges, surface water, pore water, sediment, soil and fish were sampled along the entire reach of the Savannah River system. The Savannah River is formed by the confluence of the Seneca and Tugaloo Rivers which is now under the waters of Lake Hartwell in northeast Georgia.
Nineteen stations were targeted for sampling by the Water Management Division, from Lake Hartwell through Lakes Russell and Thurmond, to the tide gates near the mouth of the Savannah River. Additional influent and/or effluent samples were collected from 24 industrial and municipal dischargers along the river. Samples were analyzed for mercury, nutrients, sulfate, sulfide and other parameters.
